Lewis and Clark Fife and Drum Corps
Established in 1992, the Lewis and Clark Fife and Drum Corps takes its name from the explorers who camped in St. Charles. The uniforms, distinguished by red wool coats and bearskin crested round hats, are patterned after those of U. S. Army field musicians for the period 1804-1810. While the corps represents a specific period of time in history,k they also perform at time-line events, rendezvous, a wide variety of historical celebrations, Revolutionary and Civil War events. The members range in age from 10-18 and reside in the greater St. Charles area. Their mission is to encourage the development of young fifers and drummers and promote a greater understanding and appreciation for the Lewis and Clark Expedition. www.lewisandclarkfifeand drum.com
