On December 7, 1803, William Clark and several recruits landed at Cahokia, a town of about 700 residents. Meriwether Lewis was on the road to St. Louis to meet with the Spanish Governor. Two local men, Nicholas Jarrot and John Hay, went with him as translators. The Spanish official would not allow them to ascend the Missouri River. They decided to build their winter camp in Illinois. The party left Cahokia on December 10, but often returned for supplies, mail, and news.
