History Trail Part - 5

Lewis & Clark Trail Rendezvous Re-Enactment 2009, Ft. Union, MT
These photos are from the re-enactment of the early American Rendezvous along the Lewis and Clark trail. Each year the fur companies from the east would meet up with the trappers and Native Americans out west to purchase furs and hides. The rendezvous served as not only places of commerce but also as a place of rare entertainment and socialization. OG wearing her prairie dress.
