HARTFORD — Actors and artisans will bring the Lewis and Clark expedition to life during events this month at the Lewis and Clark State Historic Site north of St. Louis.
On May 10, hundreds of fourth-graders will get to see how William Clark and Meriwether Lewis prepared to set off on their journey to explore the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase.
Activities include starting a fire with flint and steel, making rope and making trade bead necklaces.
Events open and free to the general public will take place May 11 and 12. Re-enactors will portray expedition members and display the frontier lifestyle.
The programs are being held to mark the May 14 anniversary of the day in 1804 that members of the Corps of Discovery left the camp and began their expedition.
