Description
When President Thomas Jefferson commissioned Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark to lead the Corps of Discovery, one of the expedition's missions was to map the uncharted territory through which it passed. This site from the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History focuses on the major strides made by the expedition in mapping the vast American interior. You'll also learn about the Native Americans encountered on the journey and be able to view some of the maps the mission produced.
