not too long ago i read or saw on tv about where a suspected lewis and clark extended encampment some where was being investigated for signs they were there . what they were digging up was a suspected latrine (outhouse ) . (the army alway builds them ) . the evidence they looking for as proof was mercury as near as i can remember . mercury was used extensively back then in medicine . i could have seen this on the history channel .

Bill, I saw the same thing. My memory is not as good as I'd like it to be, but as I recall it was a place where they stayed near an Indian village.
I think they were there for a while on their way west near a river. but, I cant remember if it was the missouri* of not.

I'll look around on the history channel and see what I can find........gfp
