Lewis and Clark Program NEW!!!
It was an extraordinary adventure. A small
band of men, led by co-captains and guided at times by a teenage Native American woman, traveled over thousands of miles through
the heart of a mighty, unknown wilderness on an epic journey that helped forge a nation. They called themselves the
Corps of Discovery. Their commanders, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark took them where no American citizen had ever
gone before, where they saw wonders few white men would ever behold. It was an arduous, dangerous, and undeniably exciting,
and it ranked as one of the great explorations of all time.
This program tracks the progress of the Corps of Discovery on their outbound route to the Pacific Ocean
and briefly points out interesting facts about the journey along the way. The hands-on museum that accompanies this
program includes Native American artifacts as well as trade items carried for barter with those tribes encountered along the
way. Also included are mapping and charting tools and everyday items used by the explorers.
