Lewis & Clark In Illinois

August 19, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

- Free

Illinois was the “Point of Departure” on May 14, 1804, for the Lewis and Clark Expedition that left from the eastern banks of the Mississippi River at the Wood River confluence and began their two and one half year journey to explore the Louisiana Territory and search for a passage to the Pacific Ocean. Illinois is often not considered part of the expedition, but in fact the men spent more time in Illinois than any other state except North Dakota. Site Superintendent, Brad Winn of the Lewis and Clark State Historic Site, will present a program retelling this often overlooked Illinois Story.
