This is the way I believe Lewis may have looked in Montana near the Continental Divide. He's wearing his military chapeau and has on a leather war shirt which has strips quilled in the Mandan fashion on each arm. The expedition sent back to Jefferson a couple of these war shirts that they collected. He also has on a pair of undecorated, plains style 'mockersons' (Clarks spelling). His linen overalls are well patched and stained. He mentioned in his journals that the first time he strapped on his knapsack was in the mountainous region in Montana. It's a military issue, New Invented Knapsack which was painted a brick red. His hunting equipment consists of a leather hunting bag, a powder horn with a carved and blackened spout and the rifle he was painted with in St. Memin's post-expedition portrait. The most interesting article he's holding is the spyglass. The Lewis family owned this English telescope until the early 1970's and believed it actually went on the expedition. Its main tube is a beautiful honey colored wood with brass fittings.
