A visit to Abraham Lincoln State Park near Mandan, ND

Cook Travelogue has posted an excellent review of a visit to Ft. Abraham Lincoln State Park. This is a blog post that is almost a self-contained history lesson (with photos), explaining the background and significance of the Custer House and the Mandan earthlodges (both reconstructed).

Also mentioned is the North Dakota Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center, where the Lewis and Clark Expedition spent the winter of 1804-1805, in a small stockade they constructed and called "Fort Mandan".

You can see their blog entry here: North Dakota.
