1 Lewis & Clark Return Home On March 23, 1806, Meriwether Lewis, William Clark, and their team started for home. At first they took the same path. But after they crossed the Rocky Mountains, the group split up. Lewis went north. He traveled on the Marias (muh-ri-uhz) River. Clark came back by the Yellowstone River. The team met again at the Missouri River. From there they stayed together. They followed the same path home. The team stopped at the Mandan village. Sacagawea and her family stayed there. The team was sad to say goodbye to Sacagawea. She was very brave. She saved things when their boat turned over. She also got horses from an Indian tribe. The team used the horses to cross the mountains. The team knew that Sacagawea helped to make the trip a success. At last, the team reached St. Louis. It was September 23, The trip was dangerous. The team had covered 7,689 miles (12,400 km) of wilderness. People cheered for them. The trip took almost two-and-a-half years. A lot of people had thought that they were dead. 37 Shell Education #50082 Leveled Texts: Expanding & Preserving the Union

2 Congress gave each man a 320-acre plot of land in the West. They also got paid twice as much as they had expected. William Clark got married and had children. He also adopted Sacagawea s two children. He died at the age of 68. Meriwether Lewis had trouble after the trip. He was not happy. He had problems with money. He could not find a job he liked. Sadly, he killed himself in Meriwether Lewis The team had hoped to find a water path from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean. There was no such path. But their trip was still a success. Why? So much new information was learned. The captains had drawn maps. And, their logs told Americans about more than 300 new plants and animals. William Clark Lewis and Clark claimed the Pacific Northwest for the United States. Now, the nation went from coast to coast. This sparked a time of growth for the United States. Fur trappers and settlers went into the new land. 38 Comprehension Question The men did not find the water route to the West, so why was this trip still a success?

5 Lewis & Clark Return Home On March 23, 1806, the Corps of Discovery began to head home. At first they took the same route they did coming west, but after the Rocky Mountains, they split up. Lewis took some men and traveled north up the unexplored Marias (muh-ri-uhz) River while Clark took some men and came back by the Yellowstone River. The two crews met again at the Missouri River, and from there they followed their original route. The team stopped at the Mandan village to leave Sacagawea and her family there. The crew was sad to say goodbye to this brave woman to whom they owed a debt of gratitude. Sacagawea had saved things when a boat flipped over. She also got horses from an Indian tribe. The horses helped the group cross the mountains. The Corps of Discovery arrived back in St. Louis on September 23, These brave men had survived incredible challenges and covered 7,689 miles (12,400 km) of wilderness. Crowds cheered for them.

6 Congress was proud of what the men had accomplished. It gave a bonus to the men. Each man got a 320-acre plot of land in the West and twice as much pay as he had been promised. William Clark got married and had children. He later adopted Sacagawea s two children. He died at the age of 68. But Meriwether Lewis had a hard time after the expedition (eks-puh- DISH-uhn). He was depressed and had money problems. He could not find a job he liked. Sadly, he killed himself in Meriwether Lewis Lewis and Clark found no direct water route from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean. That was a disappointment, but their journey was still a big success. The captains journals held detailed maps of the land and the rivers and described and illustrated 178 new plants and 122 new animals. William Clark The Corps of Discovery claimed the Pacific Northwest for the United States. Now, the nation spread all the way from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean.

The country not only grew larger, but richer based on the expedition of Lewis and Clark.

They started to return by the same route, but after the Rocky Mountains, the group split up. Lewis took some men and traveled north on the unexplored Marias (muh-ri-uhz) River while Clark took others and followed the Yellowstone River. The two crews met again at the Missouri River and continued on their original route. The team stopped at the Mandan village, where they left Sacagawea and her family behind. The crew was sad to say goodbye to her since they knew that they owed much of their success to this brave woman. Not only had she obtained horses for them to cross the mountains, she had saved valuable items when a boat overturned. The Corps of Discovery arrived in St. Louis on September 23, These brave men had survived incredible challenges while making their way through 7,689 miles (12,400 km) of wilderness. Crowds cheered their arrival.
