Sacagawea is possibly the most memorialized woman in the United States! With dozens of statues and monuments, Sacagawea lived a short but legendarily eventful life in the American West.
Sacagawea was a Shosone woman who accompanied the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1804-06. Remarkably, she did it all while caring for the son she bore just two months before departing.
The Lewis and Clark expedition changed American history by helping it to settle a new region, including the states of Idaho, Washington, and Oregon.
"The articles which floated out were nearly all caught by Sacagawea...almost every article necessary to insure the success of the enterprise."
