About Lewis & Clark

President Thomas Jefferson tasked two men, Lewis and Clark, to explore the Louisiana Purchase. They were to collect data on everything they came across, from flora and fauna, to local populations, geography and map charting. This was extremely dangerous. America back then still had hostilities between the natives and the settlers, and the British, French and Spanish were vying fiercely for economic dominance. No one could know of the expedition.

Army Captain Meriwether Lewis had to learn medical cure, astronomical navigation, and he was already an expert in mineralogy and had the constitution to finish the mission. William Clark was a already a seasoned soldier then, even though he was just in his twenties. He was involved in the Northwest Indian War and had served in the military for more than 5 years.

The expedition was long and arduous. They started out on a boat, but that soon was damaged and they had to continue on foot and any form of transportation they could find along the way. At the end of it, Clark had to resign due to poor health, at the young age of 26. And barely any mention of the expedition was known to the public at all. Lewis and Clark have since been memorialized in many government buildings, commemorative coins and dollar notes, and several statues have been erected in recognition of their work.
