Riding the Missouri
July 29-August 12, 1806
On August 11 one of Clark's group, while out hunting, shot at what he thought was an elk—and hit a buckskin-clad Lewis instead. The shot passed through Lewis’s left thigh, inflicting a painful but not fatal wound.
Clark and Lewis's groups were reunited. From here on, the current of the Missouri River would carry them homeward at a swift pace.
