Lewis and Clark River Museum showcases Expedition Camp Reenactment

SIOUX CITY (KTIV) –  As a continuation of Saturday’s Sergeant Floyd burial reenactment, the river-front museum offered a historic display.

The grounds showcased authentic tents, camp equipment, uniforms, and firearms similar to those used during the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

Reenactors were there in full costume to interact with visitors and to bring the history of the camp to life.

“This is the hook they actually used in the 1820s at the fort. It’s one of the items that we produce and it’s called experimental archaeology in which you use the marks, and the shape, and so on from the original to reproduce, as best you can, how they did it,” said Expedition Blacksmith Reenactor, Dean Slader.

The showcase was a part of the annual remembrance of Sergeant Floyd who was the only member of the expedition to pass away during their journey.
