Fort Clatsop is a re-creation of the fort Lewis and Clark built and hunkered down in for the winter after finally arriving at their destination.....the Pacific Ocean in 1805. Sacajawea was with them at this location. We arrived at the site not long before closing so I was enlisted to help fold the flag at the end of the day. Then the flag had a mere 15 stars!
