Storyboard Text

  • The Louisiana Purchase
  • I guess I have no choice. This offer is too good to pass up! I'll purchase the land to double the size of the country.
  • Louis and Clark Begin
  • Finally! Let's start!
  • Leg 3 of the Journey
  • We are not giving you a boat!
  • We want a boat!
  • The Louisiana Purchase could be considered one of the most important purchases in U.S. history! Thomas Jefferson purchased 827,000 square miles worth of land from Napoleon Bonaparte (French) in 1803 for $15 million. Jefferson originally sent James Monroe to negotiate with France for just New Orleans and parts of the Florida's. He later ended up buying all of the territory.
  • Leg 6 of the Journey
  • HELP!!!
  • The expedition started upstream on the Missouri River on May 20, 1804. The Expedition was well supplied. After all, they have been preparing for this journey since the fall of 1803!
  • Leg 19 of the Journey
  • Half of our horses are gone!!!
  • One of the Expedition's missions was to make good terms with the Teton Sioux Tribe. This tribe was very powerful! The Expedition greeted the tribe with a medal, a military coat, and a corked hat, but the tribe wanted a boat. The Sioux Tribe felt threatened, and a fight almost broke loose. At the last moment, both sides drew back.
  • Lewis and Clark Return
  • Lewis and Clark are still making their way west, but, they are now in Grizzly country! Many of the Native Americans have been warning the expedition of the Grizzly bears, but Lewis thought nothing of it. That is, until he was chased for 80 yards by a Grizzly bear. The bear was eventually killed by Lewis and a colleague of his.
  • At this leg of the journey, Lewis and his group broke camp. Lewis ran into 8 Blackfeet Tribe members and they became "friends". Eventually, one of the Blackfeet stole 2 rifles, but 2 Indians died in the process. On the other side, Clark's group ran into the Crow tribe. On July 21, the group woke up to find that half of their horses had been stolen!
  • September 23, 1806, the expedition was finally over! After a more than 8,000 miles journey that for 2 years, 4 months, and 10 days, they made it. The expedition returned with 300 new specie discoveries. After this treacherous journey, Lewis and Clark were the first ot reach the Pacific Ocean over land!
