About this book

Contains the fullest of the enlisted men's records, the journal of John Ordway. As senior sergeant, Ordway was in command when the captains were absent from the main body of the expedition. He was also the sole member of the party never to miss a day in his journal; for several portions of the crossing, his is the only extant account. Ordway's journal has never before been published with the other records of the venture. Charles Floyd's journal is tragically short, ending with his death near present-day Sioux City, Iowa, on 20 August 1804. Floyd was the only member of the party to die en route, and his journal-adding several details absent from the captains' records-indicates that the record of the journey is poorer for his loss.
