Hi, I’m Jasmine and I’m going to talk about Sacagawea. I hope you enjoy it!
Why am I writing a blog about Sacagawea? The reason why is because Sacagawea is a person that interests me. I think that Sacagawea is a very special person and that is why I chose her for my blog.
I think that Sacagawea is special because she was the one who helped Louis and Clark on their expedition. I don’t think that Louis and Clark could have done it without her. Sacagawea helped them on the expedition a lot. She was the one who got horses for them. She was also the interpreter when they came upon an Indian tribe.
Now I am going to tell you some facts about her. Sacagawea was born in 1788. She was the sister of the Shoshone Chief. When she was about 12 years old, she was captured and sold as a slave to a French-Canadian trader. Instead of working for the man, she married him. She had a son named Jean Baptiste. Jean became the youngest explorer ever.
The United States grew twice the size due to the Louisiana Purchase. Sacagawea and her husband were asked to help Louis and Clark on their expedition. She accepted and helped Louis and Clark a lot.
I would really like to learn more about Sacagawea. If I got to meet her face to face I would ask her these questions. What did you do as a child? How was your childhood? Did you like the expedition? Why did you choose to go on the expedition with Louis and Clark?
That would be really cool to be able to talk to her in person. Anyway, I hope you are also very interested in Sacagawea because I’m sure am. Well, that’s the end of my blog and I hope you enjoyed it!
