Karl Bodmer. “Mandan Village,” from Prince Maximilian of Wied’s Travels to the Interior of North America, 1843–1844. The Newberry Library, Chicago. This view of a Mandan village was executed in 1833, a generation after Lewis and Clark visited the upper Missouri River, but it captures a scene that closely matches the explorers’ descriptions. 2. Karl Bodmer. “Winter Village of the Minatarres [sic],” from Prince Maximilian of Wied's Travels to the Interior of North America, 1843–44. The Newberry Library, Chicago. This lithograph was based on sketches made at Fort Clark, an American Fur Company post built in 1834 across the Missouri river from Lewis and Clark’s former camp. At the time, the Hidatsas were also called “Minatarees.” 3. Joseph Whitehouse. Journal Commencing at the River Dubois [Wood River, IL], 1804–05. The Newberry Library, Chicago. Private Joseph Whitehouse’s diary provides a vivid account of the Lewis and Clark expedition’s long journey. 4. John Reich, engraver. Silver Jefferson Peace and Friendship Medal, 1801. The Newberry Library, Chicago. The Lewis and Clark expedition left St. Louis with nearly 90 Jefferson medals, which carried the image of the third president on one side and the motto “Peace and Friendship” on the reverse; expedition leaders distributed them liberally to their Indian hosts. 5. Unidentified artist. “Captain Clark and Men Building Huts,” in Patrick Gass, Journal of the Voyages and Travels of the Corps of Discovery, under the Command of Capt. Lewis and Capt. Clarke, 1811. The Newberry Library, Chicago. First published in 1807, Sergeant Patrick Gass’s journal of the Lewis and Clark expedition became quite popular in the United States and was also published in Europe. 6. Unidentified artist. “Moonlight on the Western Waters,” in Patrick Gass, Lewis and Clark's Journal to the Rocky Mountains in the Years 1804–5–6; As Related by Patrick Gass, One of the Officers in the Expedition, 1847. The Newberry Library, Chicago. No caption. 7. George Catlin. “Mah to toh pa (The Four Bears),” copied by the artist from his Souvenir of the North American Indians As They Were in the Middle of the 19th Century, 1852. The Newberry Library, Chicago. Four Bears was a popular Mandan leader who died in the devastating smallpox epidemic that swept through the Mandan settlements in 1837. Four Bears had been a child when the Lewis and Clark expedition wintered with his tribe 33 years earlier. 8. Unidentified photographer. “Arikara Children: Susie Nagle and Mary Walker,” taken at the Fort Berthold Reservation, c.1890. The Newberry Library, Chicago. Following the Lewis and Clark expedition, the number of American and Canadian fur traders traveling in the Indian Country grew, as did the population of mixed-heritage children. While accepted in Indian communities, these children were often scorned by whites. 9. Olin Dunbar Wheeler. School teacher with his family and students, taken at the Fort Berthold Reservation, 1904. The Newberry Library, Chicago. In the 19th and 20th centuries, U.S. authorities operated schools for Indians like the one shown here. Schools featured tightly-structured programs of academic instruction and forbade students to speak anything but English. 10. "Map of North America" based on Aaron Arrowsmith’s 1802 map, from Brookes' General Gazetteer Improved (...), 1806. The Newberry Library, Chicago. Lewis and Clark lacked detailed knowledge about the North American interior. The best-known maps of the era showed the regions between the Mississippi River and the Pacific Ocean as virtually empty.
