A six foot tall statue of the dog "Seaman," who traveled with Lewis and Clark, has been dedicated along the Missouri River at a spot where the Corps of Discovery wintered in 1804-1805. 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 was created by artist Tom Neary for the Lewis & Clark Fort Mandan Foundation, and stands on Seaman Overlook at Fort Mandan.
