Seaman the dog of Lewis and Clarks Exposition

Greeting visitors at the front entrance of the North Dakota Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center in Washburn, North Dakota, stand three 12-foot tall steel statues depicting Meriwether Lewis, William Clark, and Mandan Chief Sheheke. By Tom Neary

Statue of Seaman - Lewis and Clark's Dog

Also shown here is a six foot tall statue of the dog "Seaman," a large Newfoundland dog who traveled with Lewis and Clark, and of course, Lee Duquette, one-half of the two RV Gypsies.

Seaman, a sturdy Newfoundland dog, was the pet of Meriwether Lewis, chronicled in their journey logs as a faithful companion and even a hero, carrying food to an injured explorer and fending off predators around the camp.

The double life-size steel sculpture of Seaman was created by artist Tom Neary for the Lewis & Clark Fort Mandan Foundation.
