Enlisted Men of the Expedition

These profiles of members of the Lewis and Clark Expedition were written as though each individual was talking directly to you. The time would be May 13, 1804 at the expedition's camp on the Wood River in Illinois. The following day the Corps of Discovery embarked on their incredible journey. In each case there is a "P.S." which tells you what happened (if it is known what happened) to each of these people after the expedition was over.
