Medical Care on the Lewis and Clark Voyage of Discovery
Fruehling reviews the state of medicine at the time of the Expedition and the medical treatments employed by Lewis and Clark. Over the 28 months and the 8000 miles of their journey, only one man died. The men of the Expedition encountered many medical problems. The Commanders treated many of the Native Americans along the way. This program is for grade 9 through adult.
