  • The Louisiana Purchase Treaty 
  • All is done here. Thank you. I will send explorers.
  • Lewis and Clark start their expedition
  • Go explore the Louisiana territory the French just gave us.
  • Lets go.
  • Sacajawea helps Lewis and Clark on their expedition
  • Please help us find our way on our expedition.
  • Of course I will.
  • The Louisiana Purchase was sighed on April 30th, 1803 by Napoleon, Robert Livingston, James Monroe, and Barbé Marbois giving the United Sates 15 more states to add to their territory.
  • Lewis, Clark, and Sacajawea reach the Pacific Coast
  • Now, we must get back for the winter and then you can go back home.
  • I give you 15 states of the Louisiana territory through our treaty to add to your territory. Lots of it is settled by Native Americans though.
  • Finally, we have reached the pacific coast and have explored the Louisiana territory.
  • Lewis and Clark went on their expedition from May, 1804 to September, 1806. It was the first American expedition to cross the western portion of the United States. The key people in this event were Napoleon, Robert Livingston, James Monroe, Barbé Marbois, Thomas Jefferson, Lewis, Clark, and Sacajawea.
  • Lewis gets shot while hunting for elk by an unknown person
  • Sacajawea, a native American, helped Lewis and Clark on their expedition when they wandered into their village seeking passage through the Louisiana territory. Sacajawea decided to help them through their journey even though she was pregnant. 
  • Lewis and Clark make it home
  • Sacajawea lead Lewis and Clark to the Pacific Coast where they established relations with two dozen Indian nations along the way. On the way back, they would've gotten lost somewhere in the Rocky Mountains if it weren't for the tribes that helped them find their way back.
  • While hunting for elk in the woods along the Missouri river, Lewis was shot in the hip, probably by one of his own men. They had split up to find food for their hardworking men. Lewis was about to shoot an elk when he was shot from behind, probably by a man in his crew mistaking him for elk.
  • Pow!
  • Ahhh!
  • Lewis and Clark make it home with most of their men and the whole United States welcomed them back after their 8,000 mile journey. They told President Jefferson of everything and were in a memorial with President Jefferson. Little did they know that they made a huge impact on American history.
  • Huzzah!
