were's the question
I have try to look in the internet but i didn't find much. Basically i have to compare and contrast the exploration made by Lewis and Clark with Pike’s, and tell why the Lewis and Clark journey was considered more valuable. Include each exploration team brought back, the territory covered, the people they met, and the amount of information each contributed. You may put your information in a compare/contrast chart or you may submit your information in written form.
ok what do you know about lewis and clark and pike
I know Lewis and Clark were the first American expedition to cross what is now the western portion of the United States, departing in May 1804, from near St. Louis making their way westward through the continental divide to the Pacific coast. I know Pike's Expeditionwas a military party sent out by President Thomas Jefferson and authorized by the United States government to explore the south.
Oh i also know Thomas Jefferson financed the expeditions of both Lewis and Clark and Pike
so how can you compare the too if i am correct compare means same
what did they do that seems or can be compared
I guess i could compare that they both were financed by Thomas Jefferson and that they both were writing jounals
ok and what alse are you to add (and what do they mean by contrast
The contrast part i'm not really worried because contrast means different.
. Include the material each exploration team brought back, the territory covered, the people they met, and the amount of information each contributed. what did they find how far did they go were did they go and ect
well, Lewis and Clark found a water route to the Pacific and explore the uncharted West. Pike tried to find the source of the Mississippi River and also explored the Rocky Mountains and southwestern North America.
did they gather any info
I'm not sure of the info they gathered...
are you supose to write an eassy on it
I can put it on an essay if i'd like or i could put it into a compare and contrast chart
which do you think would be easyer
I was thinking that the compare and contrast chart would be easier.
ok so what do you have so far
so far i have already done the contrast section and now the compare section is also done. The only section i'm missing is the exploration team brought back, the territory covered, the people they met, and the amount of information each contributed.
exploration team was there not a woman on there team
On the Lewis and Clark team there was Sacagawea but on Pike's team I don't think there was a woman.
ok is that what there looking for
was not tomas jefrson on pikes
I don't think thomas jefferdon was on pike's team. I didn't read in in my text book...
what about the info
That is the main point i'm stuck on
I tried googling it but didn't work
what or why did lewis and clark go on this journey
The primary objective was to explore and map the new territory, find a practical route across the Western half of the continent, and establish an American presence in this territory before Britain and other European powers tried to claim it.
did they find it or did they find something alse like the woman i belive she help them on there journey
they did find territory and Sacagawea who helped them with speaking with native tribes.
ahhh and what else
they found over 100 animal species and over 170 plants. They also brought back information on the size, minerals, and the geology of the area.
wakipdia says this Sacagawea was pregnant with her first child when the Corps of Discovery arrived near the Hidatsa villages to spend the winter of 1804–05. Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark built Fort Mandan. They interviewed several trappers who might be able to interpret or guide the expedition up the Missouri River in the springtime. They agreed to hire Charbonneau as an interpreter because they discovered his wife spoke Shoshone, and they knew they would need the help of Shoshone tribes at the headwaters of the Missouri. Clark recorded in his journal[Note 1] on November 4, 1804: a french man by Name Chabonah, who Speaks the Big Belley language visit us, he wished to hire & informed us his 2 Squars (squaws) were Snake Indians, we engau (engaged) him to go on with us and take one of his wives to interpret the Snake language ... Charbonneau and Sacagawea moved into the expedition's fort a week later. Clark nicknamed her "Janey".[Note 2] Lewis recorded the birth of Jean Baptiste Charbonneau on February 11, 1805, noting that another of the party's interpreters administered crushed rattlesnake rattles to speed the delivery. Clark and other European Americans nicknamed the boy "Little Pomp" or "Pompy". In April, the expedition left Fort Mandan and headed up the Missouri River in pirogues. They had to be poled against the current and sometimes pulled from the riverbanks. On May 14, 1805, Sacagawea rescued items that had fallen out of a capsized boat, including the journals and records of Lewis and Clark. The corps commanders, who praised her quick action, named the Sacagawea River in her honor on May 20. By August 1805, the corps had located a Shoshone tribe and was attempting to trade for horses to cross the Rocky Mountains. They used Sacagawea to interpret and discovered that the tribe's chief,Cameahwait, was her brother. Lewis recorded their reunion in his journal: Shortly after Capt. Clark arrived with the Interpreter Charbono, and the Indian woman, who proved to be a sister of the Chief Cameahwait. The meeting of those people was really affecting, particularly between Sah cah-gar-we-ah and an Indian woman, who had been taken prisoner at the same time with her, and who had afterwards escaped from the Minnetares and rejoined her nation. And Clark in his: ...The Intertrepeter & Squar who were before me at Some distance danced for the joyful Sight, and She made signs to me that they were her nation,... The Shoshone agreed to barter horses to the group, and to provide guides to lead them over the cold and barren Rocky Mountains. The trip was so hard that they were reduced to eating tallow candles to survive. When they descended into the more temperate regions on the other side, Sacagawea helped to find and cook camas roots to help them regain their strength. As the expedition approached the mouth of the Columbia River on the Pacific Coast, Sacagawea gave up her beaded belt to enable the captains to trade for a fur robe they wished to give to President Thomas Jefferson. Clark's journal entry for November 20, 1805 reads: "one of the Indians had on a roab made of 2 Sea Otter Skins the fur of them were more butifull than any fur I had ever Seen both Capt. Lewis & my Self endeavored to purchase the roab with different articles at length we precured it for a belt of blue beeds which the Squar—wife of our interpreter Shabono wore around her waste...." [sic] When the corps reached the Pacific Ocean, all members of the expedition—including Sacagawea and Clark's black manservant York— voted on November 24 on the location for building their winter fort. In January, when a whale's carcass washed up onto the beach south of Fort Clatsop, Sacagawea insisted on her right to go see this "monstrous fish". On the return trip, they approached the Rocky Mountains in July 1806. On July 6, Clark recorded "The Indian woman informed me that she had been in this plain frequently and knew it well... She said we would discover a gap in the mountains in our direction..." which is now Gibbons Pass. A week later, on July 13, Sacagawea advised Clark to cross into the Yellowstone River basin at what is now known as Bozeman Pass. Later, this was chosen as the optimal route for the Northern Pacific Railway to cross the continental divide. While Sacagawea has been depicted as a guide for the expedition, she is recorded as providing direction in only a few instances. Her work as an interpreter certainly helped the party to negotiate with the Shoshone, however, her greatest value to the mission may have been simply her presence during the arduous journey, which demonstrated the peaceful intent of the expedition. While traveling through what is now Franklin County, Washington, Clark noted, "The Indian woman confirmed those people of our friendly intentions, as no woman ever accompanies a war party of Indians in this quarter," and, "the wife of Shabono our interpeter we find reconsiles all the Indians, as to our friendly intentions a woman with a party of men is a token of peace." As he traveled downriver from Fort Mandan at the end of the journey, Clark wrote to Charbonneau: "You have been a long time with me and conducted your Self in Such a manner as to gain my friendship, your woman who accompanied you that long dangerous and fatigueing rout to the Pacific Ocian and back diserved a greater reward for her attention and services on that rout than we had in our power to give her at the Mandans. As to your little Son (my boy Pomp) you well know my fondness of him and my anxiety to take him and raise him as my own child ...If you are desposed to accept either of my offers to you and will bring down you Son your famn [femme, woman] Janey had best come along with you to take care of the boy untill I get him ...Wishing you and your family great success & with anxious expectations of seeing my little danceing boy Baptiest I shall remain your Friend, William Clark" [sic]
