Scholar and Actor Archer Ellwein brings Sgt. John Ordway to life in a first-person portrayal set in 1813. First Sgt. Ordway was the only member of the Lewis and Clark expedition to record a journal entry for every single day of the journey from Camp DuBois or Wood River until their return. Seven years after returning, Ordway is a farmer in Missouri Territory, tilling the ground deeded to him from the U.S. government because of his service on the expedition. Learn about his perspective as he reminisces about “…the greatest adventure of my life.” Later the audience has the opportunity to ask questions of the sergeant and then of the actor.
