Expedition accomplishments:

  • They created relations with the indians
  • They mapped out Westward territory/land
  • They made many discoveries over the expedition

Hardships/dilemmas faced along the way:

  • They had to overcome harsh winters
  • They had bad relations with the Sioux indians failing Jefferson's hopes for friendly relations with them
  • The timing of the return journey would be critical because they could only cross the Rocky's when the snow melted, but if they waited too long the Missouri river would be frozen

They started from St. Louis and came along the Missouri River. They also came across Fort Mandan and they camped out there during the winter. When they split up, Clark came across the Yellowstone River. Lewis came across the Great Falls trying to find a shorter route through the Rocky Mountains. They then came across Fort Clatsop. Finally they reached the Pacific Ocean.
