On U.S. 159 just after crossing the Missouri River into Nebraska. Guess Lewis & Clark was serious about the night watchman staying awake...
After the whipping Private Willard never fell asleep again on guard duty...and served admirably for the rest of the Expedition. The only member of the expedition believed to have had his picture taken. Lived a long life and next to last oldest to die.

Picture of Willard and wife.
