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.
