Lunchtime History

Lewis and Clark by Alisha Hamel

Thursday April 19, 11:30 am to 12:20 pm

Join us for an informal lunchtime lecture on the fascinating history of the Lewis and Clark expedition given by I Corps own chief archivist Alisha Hamel (Lieutenant Colonel, USAR, ret.). Alisha will inaugurate our upcoming series of “brown bag” lectures in the Lewis Army Museum lobby.

The presentation consists of an interactive lecture period covering the history of the Lewis and Clark expedition. It utilizes items in the “Discovery Box” – a display box containing replicas of historic implements, tools, books, and other items used by the exploration’s members, in addition to items of interest the explorers may have encountered along their route to the mouth of the Columbia River. Participants are then treated to a show and tell period where audience members can touch and explore some of the items in the Discovery Box. These include a grizzly bear paw print, a period uniform coat and hat, a beaver pelt, a sextant and compass.
