Sojourn at Camp Pleasant
Lewis & Clark Expedition
What’s for supper?
After a long day of fighting the current and maneuvering around sandbars, expedition members worked up an appetite. In fact, each man ate about nine pounds of meat – usually elk or deer – per day. Fish provided another source of food. The men also ate grapes, plumbs and other wild fruits they were able to gather on shore.
