HISTORY & PREHISTORY

5. Missouri Breaks

Missouri Breaks: On May 30 - 31, 1805, the explorers traveled through an area now known as the White Cliffs of the Missouri. The shore was studded with sharp flint fragments that pierced the men's moccasins and wounded their already sore feet. Lewis added that they weren't much better off in the water. The bottom and shoreline were so muddy that they had to shed their moccasins and inch their way along the bottom with the boats in tow over the shallow areas.
