Lewis and Clark in Illinois

In the fall of 1803, Captain Meriwether Lewis and William Clark passed this place with about twenty men on their way westward. At the time, there were a few residents and Lusk's Ferry located nearby. Most likely, the Expedition party visited with some of the residents before continuing on to Fort Massac.
