“Conflicts at the Cascades: Lewis and Clark in the Columbia River Gorge”
Dr. William L. Lang
In 1805-1806, difficulties encountered by the Lewis and Clark expedition while passing through the Cascades and Long Narrows of the Columbia River Gorge forced the men to make decisions that affected their experience in surprising and important ways. Each month, the Oregon Encyclopedia hosts History Nights at McMenamins Pubs in Portland, Troutdale, and Bend. At each History Night, the OE looks back at the people and events that have shaped our communities. History Nights are sponsored by the Oregon Historical Society, the Des Chutes Historical Museum, and the Northwest Examiner.
