About this title

Synopsis:

When the Lewis and Clark Expedition crossed a continent in 1803 to 1806, they started out in U.S. Army uniforms, which gradually had to be replaced with simple leather garments.

For parts of those uniforms, only a single drawing, pattern, or example survives. Historian Moore and artist Haynes have researched archives and museums to locate and verify what the men wore, and Haynes has painted and sketched the clothing in scenes of the trip.

Also included are Indian styles the men adopted, and the wardrobes of the Creole interpreters and the French boatmen. Weapons and accessories round out this complete record of what the expedition wore or carried--and why.

A great reference for artists, living history performers, museums, and military historians.

About the Author:

Robert J. Moore, Jr. is a public historian with a background in history, art, and film. He has been a National Park Service employee for more than 20 years, working at such diverse areas as Saratoga, Yorktown, Morristown, Gettysburg, and Sagamore Hill. Michael Haynes creates commissioned artwork for such clients as Civil War Times Illustrated, Time-Life, Warner Books, and the National Park Service. A lifelong interest in history has inspired his passion for historically oriented painting. His ''Uniform and Dress of the Corps of Discovery'' paintings were selected as guides for the uniforms created for National Geographic films on the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
