Fort Osage, MO

After the epic journey, Captain Clark continues to serve his President.
Under the direction of William Clark and Captain Eli B. Clemson, soldiers erected Fort Osage in 1808 to serve as an outpost for the newly established Louisiana Purchase. It housed soldiers assigned to guard the new territory.
The fort also offered Missouri’s early settlers and explorers a sanctuary from which to venture westward.
