In Their Footsteps

End of the Stone Age: George Ramsay

Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, Fort Clatsop is pleased to announce the next In Their Footsteps free speaker series event.  End of the Stone Age: George Ramsay by Aaron Webster will be on Sunday, March 17, at 1:00 p.m. 

Cape Disappointment State Park Ranger Aaron Webster has worked at the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center for the past 16 years. He has a passion for using storytelling to illuminate the lesser-known history of our region.  His presentation tells the story of George Ramsay, a Native American who lived near the mouth of the Columbia River during the time of Lewis and Clark. Ramsay may have been the son of a European sailor in the late 1700s, and by some accounts lived long enough to meet the Wilkes expedition in 1841.  His story illustrates the triumph and tragedy of the fur trade era. 

In Their Footsteps is a monthly Sunday forum sponsored by the Lewis & Clark National Park Association and the park.  These programs are held in the Netul River Room of Fort Clatsop’s visitor center and are free of charge.

For more information, call the park at (503) 861-2471, check out www.nps.gov/lewi, or Lewis and Clark National Historical Park on Facebook.
