‘Down the Missouri To St. Louis’ covers the period from July 1806 through September 23, 1806. The Corps of Discovery ultimately reunites back at the Mandan village they originally struck out from. Army Private John Coulter requests permission to separate from the Army and join the fur trappers exploring the Missouri. Sacagawea and her son, Jean Baptiste, separate from the return party at the Mandan village. Toussaint Charbonneau joins Sacagawea and their son, and the remainder of the Corps of Discovery makes for their triumphant return to St. Louis and the completion of their heroic adventures.
