No, Sacajawea never left the group of Lewis and Clark but she was kidnapped for a short time.


In 1804 Toussaint Charbonneau was interviewed to interpret Hidatsa for the Lewis and Clark expedition, but Lewis and Clark (esp. Clark) were not overly impressed with him. However, Sacagawea spoke Shoshone and Hidatsa, so they hired Charbonneau on November 4, and he and Sacagawea moved into Fort Mandan a week later. He did make several contributions to the success of the expedition. He was helpful when the expedition encountered French trappers from Canada. He served as a cook and his skill in striking a bargain came in handy. ---------------------------------------- Charbonneau, despite Clark's dislike of him, was an excellent trapper and hunter. Also, it wouldn't have been proper for Sacajawea to leave her husband and be left with all those men.


no were your face rocky mountains


In the Lewis and Clark journals it does not state specifically at what time Lewis and Clark left St. Louis. However, most of the time Lewis preferred to leave in the early morning to travel as far as possible. But it had rained during the first half of the day, so it can be supposed that Lewis and Clark left perhaps around 10:00 am rather than their usual 7:00 or 8:00 am.



First of all, it was Meriwhether Lewis who was assigned to explore the West. Clark would offer to join up with the Discovery Corps weeks after Meriwether Lewis started his journey in Pittsburgh (yes, that's right, Pittsburgh, not St. Louis. Check out the related link to the Lewis and Clark Journals for that TRUE fact) And Lewis began his journey in 1803.


They left when they screwed the man and stool his money and he said please remember me.


The main exploratory trip up the Missouri began near St. Louis. Puristswill tell you that the expedition began when Lewis left Pittsburgh with supplies .


The party of nearly 30 --including Lewis and Clark, three sergeants, 22 enlisted men, volunteers, interpreters, and Clark's slave -- departed St. Louis in May 1804 heading up the Missouri River.


It is clear because of course Sacagawea didn't want to leave her father and home.


the problems were that they couldnt stand ech other so they had to leave each other alone! call me! (!!


because that was her home town and that was her brother


they left the territory on the edge to go and find another terrritory and map out the land to that territory to continue to move westward i <3 you -summer shines-

No, because she was lingering at her home since she probably wanted to stay at the Shoshone Village.


The first explorers to leave proof that they had been through South Dakota were the Verendrye brothers in 1743. Lewis and Clark explored the area during their expedition in 1804 and again in 1806.


Lewis and Clark traveled up the Missouri River to what later became known as Ft. Mandan. Here they spent their first winter and built a fort (it later became known as Ft. Mandan because of the Mandan Indians there). At this location there was a Frenchman (fur trapper/trader) with is Shoshone wife (he had two Indian wives but Sacagawea was the Shoshone wife that was beneficial to Lewis and Clark) Sacagawea had been captured by the Hidatsas Indians several years earlier and Tousaint Charbonneau took her for his wife -- Indian style (who knows what that was). But it was Sacagawea that was of interest to Lewis and Clark for her knowledge of the territory and the language of the Shoshones (the Snake Indians) whom they knew they would encounter. That winter, Sacagawea had a little baby, Jean-Baptiste Charboneau (nicknamed Pomp), so the party did not depart Ft. Mandan until the baby was old enough to travel with the party (probably 1-3 months old). Sacagawea carried this little baby on her back all the way to the Pacific Ocean and back to St. Louis. I think it was Clark who like this baby very much and offered to educate him in a white man's school when he was old enough to leave his mother. Clark did as he promised and provided a very good education. Baptiste had the opportunity during this time to travel to Europe and was even introduced to several royalty personalities. He learned to speak German, giving his language repertoire of French (from his father) English from Lewis and Clark and the school, and he learned German while in Europe. When he returned, for some reason he became disaffected with the white man's world and returned to the Indians. He did continue he white man's contact by serving in several scouting ventures as the white men pushed on further west. (Note: I just wrote this by memory as I remember reading about it. There may be some slight mistakes in what I have said but most of it is right.) By the way, Sacagawea's sister died soon after giving birth to a baby boy named Bazil, and thus this baby boy also was considered Sacagawea's son but only by adoption. This boy was slightly older that Baptiste. Bazil later married and had a daughter named Maggie, who married a White man named Shadrack Large, who lived in Southern Wyoming. Their son, Charlie, married my grandmother's half-sister. One of Charlie Larges sisters married one of my grandmother's half-brothers. The living decendants mostly live on the Wind River Indian Reservation at present.


They left on May 14, 1803, when President Thomas Jefferson sent them to find a water route to the Pacific and explore westward lands beyond the Louisiana Purchase.


Captain Meriwether Lewis left Washington, DC on July 5, 1803.


Contrary to popular belief, the expedition DID NOT begin in St. Louis, Missouri. The first entry in the Lewis and Clark Expedition Journals state that the journey began in Pittsburgh, PA on August 30, 1804. Lewis, who had been assigned by Jefferson sailed down the Ohio River with supplies towards St. Louis. William Clark would offer to join Lewis on the expedition weeks later on October 13, 1803 at Camp Dubois (in present-day Indiana). They then named their team the "Corps of Discovery." From there, they sailed down the Ohio River towards St. Louis. Meriwether Lewis had spent the time prior to their departure in St. Louis gathering information from mountain men returning from the west. They then departed St. Louis in May 1804 heading up the Missouri River.

The explorers began their journey home from the mouth of the Columbia River, Astoria, Oregon on March 23, 1806. On July 3, after crossing the Continental Divide, the Corps split into two teams so Lewis could explore the Marias River. Lewis and Clark stayed separated until they reached the confluence of the Yellowstone and Missouri Rivers on August 11. Once reunited, the Corps was able to return home quickly via the Missouri River. They reached St. Louis on September 23, 1806.
