History Alive! Presents Sacagawea
June 22, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Come to the activities room at Beech Fork State Park at 7PM to meet a reenactor portraying Sacagawea. When Lewis and Clark hired her French-Canadian husband as an interpreter for their 1804 expedition Sacagawea came along as the lone female member of the Corps of Discovery. She gave birth to a son in early 1805 and cared for the newborn on the grueling journey to the Pacific. Aside from her value as an interpreter with knowledge of the landscape, her presence with the expedition communicated to tribes along the way that the Corps had peaceful intentions. Sacagawea will be portrayed by Mary Daily.
