 Lewis and Clark

 

 On January 18, 1803, in a secret message to Congress, President Thomas Jefferson called for an expedition into the uncharted West.  Jefferson, believing that the possession of the Northwest Passage was necessary for control of North America, appointed Merriwether Lewis to lead a group of men to the Pacific Ocean.  Lewis, an expert in botany, the study of plants, and zoology, the study of animals, knew that he could not lead alone.  He asked William Clark, a friend of his from the army, to join him.  Clark's expertise was in native cultures and map making.  Together, the two friends would lead "The Corps of Discovery" on one of the most memorable expeditions in American History...

...and venture into the unknown.
