Down The Ohio
— September 4th —
Lewis noted the low, clear water where they could "see a great number of fish of different kinds, the sturgeon, bass, catfish, pike, etc."
Lewis and Clark's Corps of Discovery gathered men and supplies as they journeyed
down the Ohio River. Lewis began keeping his journal in Pittsburgh and Clark joined
him at the Falls of the Ohio as the first of the great expeditions began.
