[QUOTE=Sod Buster;18961982]Good stuff LC. A used Shoshoni loin cloth on a hot July day, that sounds special.
The L & C journals were done in all seriousness. Meriwether L. was known to be most serious and by the book militiarily. But I'd bet Clark and the 29 others, including Seaman, were laughing their ass's off.
I'm hoping someone finds this marker in Kansas (I think, maybe Nebraska). But it is close to the Santa Fe Trail. In early 1700's some Spanish troop's encounter an Indian squaw "wearing a red"
dress riding a horse leading a gang of Indians. I got a picture of the marker a couple of yrs ago but lost it. The significance is that explorers would have sold or traded her the dress and would have been in the area 100 yrs before L & C. The real old cast iron marker is on the left side of road when heading west.
