In 1804 President Thomas Jefferson commissioned Merriwether Lewis and William Clark to lead an expedition on an eight thousand mile journey to explore the headwaters of the Missouri River in search of a Northwest Passage to the Pacific Ocean. The "Corps of Discovery" would catalog the plants and animals of the west and contact the various indigenous people in a two-and-half year odyssey to the Pacific and back. This epic journey ultimately inspired a nation and helped it to realize the vast potential of its rich and diversified resources.
