Lewis and Clark: A Modern View
John Klossner

Both Lewis and Clark wrote their journals intending that they would some day be published and available to the public at large. But what if they kept secret journals, recording more personal observations, complaints, or interpretations of what they saw?

Questions to Consider
  1. To what aspect of the Lewis and Clark expedition might the cartoon be referring?

  2. Using the "Lewis and Clark: A Scientific Interest in the Native American Population (1805)" activity as a model, write a "secret" journal entry from the point of view of Lewis, Clark, or another member of the expedition party.
