The Lewis and Clark Expedition Empty The Lewis and Clark Expedition

Recently, a large expedition funded by the American Free States was sent out to travel the waters of the Mississippi River to map out the area and find the western coast of the North American continent. Led by the intrepid Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, this party of explorers explored the river to its origin and then proceeded along the Columbia River before finally sighting the waters of the Pacific Ocean. Now the expedition has returned to the Free States with their tales.

Even more interestingly, a large and reasonably civilized nation of natives has been made contact with in the Cascades. Though this "Cascadian Confederacy" falls technically between the claims laid out recently of the Huron and the Free States, they have been encouraged to send an envoy to Philadelphia for the purpose of diplomacy and communication with the other civilized peoples of the continent.

Ser Corliss Penny gave the clan chief an incredulous look. "Do you want to die, Wull?"

That seemed to amuse the northman. "I want to live forever in a land where summer lasts a thousand years. I want a castle in the clouds where I can look down over the world. I want to be six-and-twenty again. When I was six-and-twenty I could fight all day and fuck all night. What men want does not matter.

"Winter is almost upon us, boy. And winter is death. I would sooner my men die fighting for the Ned's little girl than alone and hungry in the snow, weeping tears that freeze upon their cheeks. No one sings songs of men who die like that. As for me, I am old. This will be my last winter. Let me bathe in Bolton blood before I die. I want to feel it spatter across my face when my axe bites deep into a Bolton skull. I want to lick it off my lips and die with the taste of it on my tongue."
