Lewis and Clark-Part II

Wednesday, we continued examining the Lews and Clark Expeditin and its importance to North Dakota. Dr. Porter argued that had the expedition spent the winter at the headwaters of the Missouri River, instead of at the Mandan village, that they would have perished. There is much to support this claim, as it was at the village that the expedition encountered Charboneau and Sakakawea, who bore a son during the winter, which was to be a sign of peace to tribes upriver. We watched a twenty-minute segment of the Ken Burns’ documentary on the journey, which provided some of the evidence to the claim. The class then took a “quiz” consisting of writing on Dr. Porter’s argument.
