  • The Great American Expedition  By Zachary Thurston Block 1
  • My Good Sir Lewis, I request that you explore the Louisiana territory that we bought from the French. I need you to make records about plants, animals and the people of that region. You shall also be able to make maps of the areas you discover. 
  • Yes, I will accept your requests Mr.Jefferson. I will prepare a party to go explore the newly aquired territory.  We shall go from St Louis Missouri to the Pacific ocean and come back with more knowledge of the land.
  • Hello Miss, my group and I have come to explore these lands and we request some guidance from you and your tribe if you are willing to provide it.
  • My name is Sacagawea, I am part of the Shoshone tribe. I can help guide you through the land and we can temporarily join your search party. We can help show you the land.
  • Clark we are almost done with our expedition. Hopefully we don't suffer any more hunger, illnesses or fatigue for the rest of the trip. Were over a year in and seem close to the Pacific Ocean.
  • Lewis, it is getting very close to winter, when we reach the Pacific we should create a fort to survive the winter.  It shall be called Fort Clatsop.
  • Wow, this sight of the Pacific is just as nice as it was when we got here in November.  Its been a rough winter of preparing food and supplies to go. However, I did get to log information in my journal.
  • When we get to the area of Missouri we should split up into two groups to cover more land on our way back. Hopefully we don't get in a scenario where Indian warriors try to take our supplies.
  • Lewis, I am very pleased with your expedition. I cannot believe you found 178 new plants and 122 animals. I am also thankful for your wonderful maps and the relations you made with the American Indians. I am awarding you with a handsome salary and 1600 acres of land.
  • Thank you Mr.Jefferson. I will also make sure that my helpers also get rewarded for their actions well. I am glad to be of service. It was a long journey of 8,000 miles but it is finally over.
