Description Sgt. John Ordway speaks in first person quoting from his own journals. The script will include asides based on other sources besides Ordway's journals. Props and costume reproductions are used to humanize and personalize the Corps of Discovery for modern-day audiences. He is the only member of the Corps to have ajournal entry every single day. Set in 1813, seven years after the journey, Ordway provides a unique, thought-provoking outlook on "the greatest adventure of my life."
