This chapter presents an account of the many aspects of the bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Not only does it assess the actual physical problems linked to following the footsteps of these two explorers, but also looks at the subtle difficulties that every tourist faces whenever changes in stereotypes and conventional historical wisdom occur along the trail route. The discussion notes that both young and old people are rediscovering America in a patriotic impulse that has not been seen since the country's bicentennial in 1976. It then studies Sacagawea, who has always become the topic of nearly every conversation conducted on the trail. The chapter also examines the different sites that can be visited and restored.

Keywords:   Lewis and Clark, trail route, patriotic impulse, Sacagawea
