There are several reasons why Lewis and Clark do matter—and why we are so drawn
to them.
First, what happened to the Corps is a great story, brimming with energy and full of
forward motion. In extraordinary settings, a remarkable cast of characters
encountered adversity of epic proportions and struggled through one adventure after
another.
Also, the Lewis and Clark expedition resonates because it’s not just a white man’s
army, but rather a group of people from many different racial, ethnic, cultural and
social backgrounds—a human community as diverse as any in America today.
In addition, a close reading of the expedition records reveals that women were a part
of the journey every step of the way. Philadelphia seamstress Matilda Chapman sewed
93 shirts for the expedition; women did laundry and sold provisions to the expedition
as it over-wintered outside St. Louis; Arikara, Mandan and Hidatsa women were a
constant part of expedition life up the Missouri, providing food and friendship; and
Lemhi Shoshone women carried expedition baggage over the Continental Divide – and
let’s not forget Sacagawea.
Finally, this is a story of the type novelist Henry James once called "the visitable past."
We can still float the Upper Missouri and look on what Lewis described as "seens of
visionary inchantment." We can stand at Lemhi Pass and see the distant Bitterroots.
We can hike parts of the Lolo Trail and visit Fort Clatsop.
