Lewis Bloopers

Yes that's right the "Mr.Deeds" have some faults!

Ha Ha ha ! Very funny!

This happened between: Sept.- Nov. 1805:

 When Lewis was waving his air gun around in the air while it was pumped and loaded he accidentally shot a woman in the temple! HOW EMBARRASSING!!!!!! Luckily, the woman did not die.

This happened between: Jul. 15 - Aug. 12 1805

Lewis had asked Sacagewea what the word for white man was in her language (which was Shoshone). She said it was "tab-ba-bone". Never seeing a white man the Shoshones didn't have a word for white man and the word she gave him meant stranger or enemy. So when Lewis went out to talk to a Shoshone he kept on pointing at himself and screaming "tab-ba-bone." The Shoshones were really surprised because they had never had anyone come up to them and start screaming enemy and point to themselves. Wouldn't you act the same way?
