Lewis and Clark Pathways: Fort Abraham Lincoln
Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6 | Part 7
The path of the Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery led them to a winter along the Missouri River near the homes of agricultural Native American tribes, which would later suffer a devastating smallpox epidemic, and past the future sites of Fort Abraham Lincoln and Fort Union. The video covers the significance of the forts and the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara tribes.
Built originally to protect railroad builders in 1872, Fort Abraham Lincoln is the post where General George Custer resided during his battles with the Sioux people. The fort had no walls with the hope of encouraging engagement with the Sioux.
