“Lewis and Clark: The Eastern Legacy” Film Showing at Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex, The Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex will kick off its 2017 Lecture and Film Series at 7 p.m. on Thursday, January 26, with a showing of the film “Lewis and Clark: Eastern Legacy.” The film follows Lewis and Clark on their epic journey and features West Virginia locations such as Harpers Ferry, where Lewis picked up equipment; Wellsburg, where Patrick Gass, the oldest surviving expedition member, is buried; Wheeling, where a red pirogue and additional supplies were added; and Grave Creek Mound. Lewis visited these locations on his way to meet Clark at the Falls of the Ohio, from where the expedition headed west. Lewis’ description of Grave Creek Mound will be read after the film. The 20-minute documentary was produced by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Great Lakes and Ohio River Division. The program is held in conjunction with the monthly meeting of the Upper Ohio Valley Chapter of the West Virginia Archeological Society.
