The Carondelet Historical Society Presents
Sunday, July 21, 2019
 1:30 p.m.

                  “William Clark’s St. Louis, 1806-1838 ”
                      Speaker:  Local historian Bob Moor

Though a remarkable number of documents paint images of St. Louis during the Spanish colonial era, the picture of St. Louis during territorial days and the early years of statehood are not as clear. 

Historian Bob Moore has been searching for and gathering  documentation of the physical and social character of St. Louis during that era.  In this presentation, he will focus on St. Louis during the years that explorer William Clark lived here and served as federal Indian Agent for the Western Tribes.

We hope you can join us for this interesting presentation! 
Light refreshments will be provided
