Oregon: We Will Vote
It is the final stretch for Meriwether Lewis and William Clark in their cross-continental exploration of the Louisiana Purchase. Morale and rations are low and a decision needs to be made — should they stay put on the north shore of the Columbia River, travel west along the river, or cross the river to the south shore? Each of the choices has benefits and challenges — and Meriwether Lewis isn’t sure which to choose. That is, until he proposes that every member of the party vote.
