1: In the1800s, the western expansion began. Lewis and Clark (the leaders of the expedition) were on the move to the west with families who joined the expedition. This was very important for the families to come because then they would have more space to have for their family. As Lewis and Clark were traveling to the west, they thought for a second. They thought about what they came all the way to the west for and that they wanted more land than just Texas. When they went to Texas, they argued to get more land like California, Nevada, and Arizona. As they argued, there argument was so powerful, the government allowed them to get more land. Lewis and Clark were so happy! This was an important time period and will never be forgotten in U.S history! | This is a famous portrait of Lewis and Clark | Lewis and Clark searching for land | Lewis | Clark
2: May 18,1838 Dear Scientists, I, John James Audubon, have figured out and understood where birds go in the winter, and if they return to their same nests in the spring. Now, to notify that all of you scientists are all wrong, I have done an experiment by tying a piece of string to a birds leg and waiting to see if the bird came to their same nests as they were in last spring.Then I realized that the same bird does come to the same nest and in the winter birds go south. The reason they go south is because the cold weather isn't comfortable for them and while we have winter the south has spring or maybe . signed John James Audubon
3: Nothing Is So Beautiful As Spring | This is a drawing of one of the birds that John James Audubon drew.
4: May,24,1838 Dear Journal, I, John James Audubon,have just finished my latest masterpiece. I named it the American flamingo. I hope people will appreciate the beauty of nature and leave the birds alone. I think people don’t see the beauty in birds like how I see it. As I grew up I was fervently desirous of becoming acquainted with Nature and I still see the beauty in nature. I made this painting because I just love birds. I used colored pencils to sketch the flamingo. I just want everyone to know that I never for a day gave up listening to the songs of our birds, or watching their peculiar habits, or delineating them in the best way I could.
