More on Sacagawea

Today’s Charlottesville Daily Progress included an article with additional information about the Lewis-Clark-Sacagawea (reading north to south) statue that stands at the intersection of Ridge and Main Streets in the city. In “Experts: More to statue’s depiction of Sacagawea than meets the eye,” Rochana Dixit recounts different interpretations of Sacagawea’s pose, as well as reporting some historical facts about Charles Keck’s rendering of the explorers and their guide. Andrew Shurtleff took a very good photo graph of the statue; it is featured with the story.

Link to Ms. Dixit’s report. Read my previous entry about the protest of the statue’s depiction of Sacagawea.
