The Journals of the Lewis & Clark Expedition: The Journal of Patrick Gass, May 14, 1804-September 23, 1806

Synopsis

In order that the fullest record possible be kept of the expedition, captains Lewis and Clark required their sergeants to keep journals to compensate for possible loss of the captains' own accounts. The sergeants' accounts extend and corroborate the journals of Lewis and Clark and contribute to the full record of the expedition. Volume 10 contains the journal of expedition member Sergeant Patrick Gass.
