Chapter One: 1806: La Charrette

Virtual Event: July 29th, 4pm 

La Charrette, near present-day Marthasville, was the westernmost trading settlement on the Missouri River at the turn of the century. Lewis and Clark stopped here going up the river in 1804 and again triumphant, on their return to St. Louis on September 20, 1806. This was the frontier, full of Native Americans and wild game. 

More information on the activity for this chapter will be released soon.
