History on Lewis & Clark

Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark visited our area twice while on the Corps of Discovery.  They started the unmapped portion of the journey at the confluence of the Yellowstone and Missouri Rivers.   On their way home Capt. Clark followed the Yellowstone River and passed right by present day Sidney on his way back to the confluence.  His return trip from Traveler's Rest down the Yellowstone took only 32 days.  In comparison the trip up the Missouri to Traveler's Rest took 134 days.  He was near Sidney for his birthday in 1806 and also came in contact with a grizzly bear near present day Savage.  Otherwise the trip was fast and all were very excited to get home.  

The "new" animals that they discovered were abundant in our area.  Buffalo roamed freely in tremendous herds.  Grizzly bears feasted on the fish and wildlife in our area.   The mosquitoes were mentioned the most of all during their time through our area.  Capt.  Lewis could not stay at the confluence to wait for Capt. Clark because of the grand numbers of mosquitoes that tortured the men and Seaman the dog.
