Blackhawk Museum – Mark Jordan – The Lewis and Clark Expedition “Near Misses”

March 18 @ 10:30 am

Join the Blackhawk Museum for their 2023 Spirit of the Old West Speaker Series featuring Mark Jordan. This is the second of four speakers in the series.

The Lewis and Clark Expedition – Near Misses – How Lucky are those Men – and Women. Mark Jordan will tell stories about near disasters that could have ended the Expedition or significantly compromised its ability to succeed or resulted in the death of its participants. What danger or disaster lurked for the Expedition? Does one of the Captains almost die? More than once? Does their fully loaded large boat almost disappear? Could they have lost Sacajawea? What happened when Grizzlies attacked? Did they face Fierce Natives? What kind of serious accidents did they narrowly avoid? Is it true that only one man died? Join Mr. Jordan as he provides the stories about these exciting adventures of 31 men, one teenage girl and her infant son.
