On June 1, the Idaho Freedom Foundation launched a month-long ‘Pride in America’ series highlighting individuals “who ha[ve] demonstrated and defended American values.”  So far, the series has recognized people as diverse as explorer Davy Crockett, entrepreneur Elon Musk, saleswoman Nancy Green, and athlete Riley Gaines.

The most recent post focuses on explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, whose two-year exploration of the newly-acquired Louisiana Territory opened the door to westward expansion.  Author Niklas Kleinworth highlights their journey, giving due credit to Sacagawea for their ultimate success.  In conclusion, he states, “In honor of Lewis and Clark, we must preserve the American spirit from the Left’s destruction. Once it is gone, so goes our independence and the Idaho way of life.”
