For those history buffs, Pompey’s Pillar National Monument (also known as Pompey’s Pillar Rock) has the actual signature of William Clark during the Lewis and Clark Expedition in 1806. As he sketched his name in the side of the land form, that signature is the only physical evidence left that he was there and had passed by while on the Lewis and Clark expedition along the Yellowstone River. The Rock, due to its size, was used in native american days by Indians as a lookout. It was also used as a physical landmark for a place to cross the Yellowstone River.
