Standing upon the sandbars, swimming in the river,
and leaping across the meadows, the Corps discovered that elk were everywhere. 
The hunters prepared themselves for a feast later that evening.
At the banquet, Lewis and Clark recognized the necessity
to select a leader, to replace Sgt. Floyd. 
It was determined to leave the choice to the men. 
Therefore, the first primary election took place that evening around a campfire.
  The three nominated,
William Bratton, Patrick Gass, and George Gibson
anxiously awaited as the ballots were counted. 
Captain Lewis announced that
Patrick Gass received 19 votes (majority) and was duly elected.
