The Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis & Clark Expedition–two important American historical events. We all learn about the Anglo adventurers who took part in these events. We learn about Sacajawea and maybe her husband, Toussaint Charbonneau. But we rarely learn about the other French and Métis who participated in and were crucial to the success of these ventures.
In Part 3 of Settling the American West, Rob Foxcurran concludes the series with a look at other important names missing from history books. These names include Drouillard, Laframboise, Dorion, Robidoux, Lucier, and many others.
