The men helping on the expedition built a fort which was called Fort Mandan. Where Lewis and Clark raised the U.S. flag. Then conversation brewed between the expedition leaders and Indian and French Canadians, which among them was a trapper-trader named Toussaint Charbonneua. Surprisingly Lewis and Clark were more interested in Charbonneu's wife, 15 year old Sacajawea.
In November 1804, the Missouri River began to freeze Lewis recored temperatures as low as 40 degrees below zero. Clark soon led half of the expedition's men down the frozen river, there they killed 40 deer, three buffalo, and 16 elk. That produced 3,000 pounds of meat which was stolen by a number of 100 warriors. Spring came along canoes were built for travel, on April 7, 1805 they set out up the Missouri River with 31 men, Sacajawea and her two-month-old son. Adventures for Lewis and Clark came both shooting buffalo and attacked by grizzly bears.
Sergeant On July 22, the party reached the Tree Forks of the Missouri, soon after Lewis and Clark ran into Shoshone Indians. On August 30, with the help of an indian named Toby the group was on a two week journey. By spring 1806, Lewis and Clark led their men back to East with new and grave information about our new land. The entire party arrived in St. Louis in September, in which only one man was lost Sergeant Floyd.
