Pardoned By Taft

At the suggestion of Joe Taylor, one of the earliest pioneers on the upper Missouri river, an effort will be made by the State Historical society to obtain for preservation the historic site of old Fort Mandan, where Lewis and Clark camped during the winter of 1804-1805. Although over 100 years have elapsed, the old rifle pits and fortifications are still distinct and the site is one of great historic interest. The site is at Elm Point, about 70 miles above Bismarck—17 miles above Washburn—section 14, township 144, range 84, nearly opposite the present townsite of Deapolis.
