Prop Mountain Men, Lewis and Clarke’s Corps of Discovery Expedition, and “The Revenant” Period Weapons

A mountain man is a trapper and explorer who lives in the wilderness. Mountain men were most common in the North American Rocky Mountains from about 1810 through the 1880s (with a peak population in the early 1840s). They arose in a natural geographic and economic expansion driven by the lucrative earnings available in the North American fur trade, in the wake of published accounts of the Lewis and Clark expeditions’ (1803–1806) findings about the Rockies and the Oregon Country where they flourished economically for over three decades. With the rise of the silk trade and quick collapse of the North American beaver-based fur trade in the later 1830s–1840s, many of the mountain men settled into jobs as Army Scouts or wagon train guides, or settled throughout the lands which they had helped open up.
