11: Dear Hero, I think you are a hero because your the only women on the Lewis and Clark expedition. I mean look at you now you are on the United Stats 1$ coin and you the head in The National American Woman Suffrage Association! You were a symbol of peace without you they would have died! You also proved girls aren't weak I mean you co-lead a 6 1/2 month, 4,000 mile journey with an infant. Without you none of us would have known about the west. You also have many landmarks of your expedition named after you. Sincerely, Maida S. Abdi
