   schema:reviewBody ""Meriwether Lewis (1774-1809) and William Clark (1770-1838) helped determine a nation's destiny. Between 1803 and 1806 they led the Corps of Discovery, commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson, across the uncharted American West. Operating under a letter of instruction from Jefferson, they carried the concerns of the American Enlightenment to the sprawling interior of the continent." "Lewis and Clark recorded Indian vocabularies and culture, opened diplomatic relations with more than 50 tribes, collected botanical and zoological specimens, mapped the land, secured samples of minerals, and recorded temperature and weather data. They established U.S. military posts on the plains of North Dakota and at the mouth of the Columbia River, sites of their winter encampments of 1804-1805 and 1805-1806." "Lewis and Clark exhibited unerring leadership and fortitude in carrying out their complex mission. The success of their labors unleashed a flood of consequential events altering the course of a nation and undoing thousands of years of traditional lifeways of Native Americans. An eager world sought to share in their adventures. Their reports and other narratives about the expedition quickened interest in the American West, feeding the nation's fascination with exotic lands and cultures and fueling dreams of westward expansion."--Jacket." ;
