      So Jefferson ordered the famous Lewis and Clark expedition. It is tempting to think that Pike’s venture was a southern counterpart to Lewis and Clark, but it wasn’t. The Lewis and Clark expedition was a military operation. Of the 33 individuals who made the trip to the Pacific, there were two officers in command and 26 enlisted men. Previous scholarship has focused on the places visited and the discoveries made by the expedition, however, little has ever been written about the expedition's uniforms, arms.

      Over the mountains he went, winning the Battle of Vincennes against the British which resulted in the addition of what became 6 states to the young American  colony. Mentor and older brother to William Clark, who went on to win fame as part of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, George Rogers Clark was a pioneer in his own right, founding.   At a program event one year in Miami, Wilson planned to distribute copies of Lewis’ book “March.” Lewis, a speaker at the event, wanted to sign the books so Wilson offered to ship them.

    Knowing that Clark and the main party would be anxious to learn the news, at sunrise on J the day after he reached the falls, Lewis sent back Joseph Field to advise them. They arrived at the site of the lower portage camp on the evening of J and the next afternoon reunited with Lewis . The Lewis and Clark expedition set out in to explore the vast territory west of the Mississippi that had recently been acquired from France through the Louisiana Purchase. The main purpose was to discover the Northwest Passage, a navigable waterway that linked the Atlantic with the Pacific.
