  • 7:00 p.m. – Sacagawea! At the Amphitheater – When Lewis and Clark hired her French-Canadian husband as an interpreter for their 1804 expedition, Sacagawea came along as the lone female member of the Corps of Discovery. She gave birth to a son in early 1805 and cared for the newborn on the grueling journey to the Pacific. Aside from her value as an interpreter with knowledge of the landscape, her presence with the expedition communicated to tribes along the way that the Corps had peaceful intentions.  Portrayed by Mary Dailey of Ronceverte, this History Alive! program is at Pipestem State Park Amphitheater beginning at 7:00 p.m.  History Alive programs are always open to the public at no cost and made possible by the WV Humanities Council engaging the public with history.
