On July 16, 1806, Captain Lewis gave instructions to Sgt. Ordway to finish the portage at the Great Falls and wait for him at the month of Maria's River. After their wild encounter with the Blackfoot on the Two Medicine and a twenty-hour ride, Lewis, Drouillard and the two Field brothers were overcome with "unspeakable satisfaction" when they heard gunshots coming from the river.

They rode to the bank and saw Sgt. Ordway's party in six canoes coming down the river. They hurriedly unpacked their horses and gave them their freedom. Quickly loading their gear, they headed to the mouth of Maria's River where they opened the caches and abandoned the damaged red pirogue before hastily leaving Blackfoot county.
