Famous quotes containing the word expedition:
“It is a sort of ranger service. Arnolds expedition is a daily experience with these settlers. They can prove that they were out at almost any time; and I think that all the first generation of them deserve a pension more than any that went to the Mexican war.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
