Lewis And Clark Mapping The Trail

Mapping on the Trail:

"His [Clark's] first [map-making] teacher was probably his older brother, the famous Indian fighter and Revolutionary War hero George Rogers Clark. His brother was also a land surveyor. As a young Army officer during the 1790s, Clark received further training in mapmaking."

The two explorers used their first winter together at Camp Dubois (Wood) and in St. Louis improving their surveying skills...".
