QUOTE OF THE DAY
At one o'clock we halted on a sand bar, and, after dinner, executed the sentence of the court-martial, so far as giving the corporal punishment. . . The punishment of this day alarmed the Indian chief very much. He cried aloud (or affected to cry). I explained the cause of the punishment and necessity of it. He also thought examples were necessary, and he himself had made them by death. His nation never whipped even their children, from their birth.

Journal, Missouri River near Thunderhawk Creek in present-day North Dakota - October 14, 1804
Partner Highlight - The Bureau of Land Management (BLM)
As the Corps of Discovery worked its way westward, members of the Expedition wrote detailed journal entries about many of the spectacular landscapes now managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The Louisiana Purchase of 1803 and the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1803-1806 opened the heartland of the North American continent for exploration, settlement, and achievement. This new frontier attracted immigrants from around the world and became synonymous with the search for spiritual, economic, and political freedom. (Continued). BLM Logo
