Learn @ Your Library: "Lewis & Clark Expedition" | Thursday, March 02, 2017 @ 6:30 PM
Randy portrays Sergeant Patrick Gass of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, a carpenter on the journey and the first to publish his journal after the expedition. Patrick Gass lived to be 98 years old and thus had a better perspective on how the Lewis and Clark Expedition changed the course of American history than any other member on the expedition. Why they went, what they saw, who they met, and what they did on this extraordinary adventure into American west is our focus. A wide variety of artifacts utilized throughout the program helps to bring history to life. In the year 1800 Meriwether Lewis served as paymaster for Fort Detroit and some of Patrick Gass' relatives still live here in Michigan. Program length one hour. Best suited for grades 4 through adult.
