1. Peter Geery Marker
Inscription.  Peter Geery is best remembered for the role he played in the formation of the Lewis & Clark Discovery Expedition of St. Charles as an authentic re-enactment group. Because of his knowledge and love of history, the men were encouraged to acquire the correct clothing and equipment. Peter taught them the procedures, practices and proper campsite set-up of the early nineteenth century. Wherever the re-enactors traveled, Peter was an enthusiastic teacher as crowds surrounded him asking questions and wanting more information about the Lewis & Clark Expedition
