Fort Mandan

Fort Mandan, 1804-05 winter quarters of Lewis and Clark Expedition, also was the birthplace of the son born to Sakakawea and her French husband Charbonneau, interpreter for the explorers.  The "Bird Woman" helped guide Lewis and Clark to their destination on the Pacific Coast.

This replica of Fort Mandan was erected and dedicated by McLean County Historical Society in 1972.  The original site, 10 miles west upriver, is now in the river channel. ~ text of marker
