This web site contains many videos
of leading historians, reenactors, representatives of native tribes,
and other experts on the Lewis and Clark expedition and the land
the Corps of Discovery explored. In addition, other videos are
available on DVD. The DVD videos provide students with more information
on the explorers and the expedition.
The DVD is available
to you in the traveling artifacts barrel. To view a copy of the
DVD, you'll need to schedule a barrel.
Many of the videos on the DVD complement other artifacts in the
barrel. They allow students to see the items in use. For example,
one video depicts a reenactor using a flint and steel fire-starter
kit, while another video depicts him firing a flintlock rifle.
Below are samples
of three videos from the DVD. In the first two videos reenactors
describe life on the expedition as well as the work that goes
into retracing the explorers' path. The third video is a description
of Seaman, Meriwether Lewis' Newfoundland dog, who accompanied
the Corps on its expedition.
