  • Most historians still believe Sacajawea died of Typhus at Fort Manuel in South Dakota on Dec. 20, 1812, at the age of 25. There appears to be some evidence to support this such as the journal of a clerk at the fort who noted, 'Tonight, the wife of Charbonneau died...' However, Shoshone oral history describes Sacajawea living a nomadic life, finally appearing at the Wind River Reservation and dying there in 1884, an old woman. I'd like to believe the latter myself. It's tragic to think she survivied the hardships of the Lewis and Clark expedition only to die so young, leaving two young children behind.
