Oregon National Guard expands American History presentations
The Oregon National Guard is continuing and expanding it's Lewis and Clark educational outreach program that goes into schools and organizations to teach the Oregon public about the history of the Lewis and Clark expedition. The presentation consists of an interactive lecture period of talking about the history of the Lewis and Clark expedition using the items in the "Discovery Box," followed by a movie that ties the history of the expedition together, then a period of time where the audience can come up to touch and experience some of what Lewis and Clark experienced during the expedition. The "Discovery Box" consists of items that Lewis and Clark would have taken with them on the expedition or would have encountered along the way. Some items are a grizzly bear paw print, a period uniform coat and hat, a beaver pelt, a sextant and compass etc.
The Oregon National Guard is expanding it's program into other eras of American history starting with a presentation on World War II that should be ready for scheduling by December. The WWII presentation will have many of the same aspects that the Lewis and Clark presentation did with a box of era appropriate items and an interactive power point presentation. To schedule a presentation at please contact Cherie Cavallero at 503-584-2272 or email address of Cherie.Cavallaro@or.ngb.army.mil.
