History

On May 14th, 1804, Lewis, Clark, and others sailed out of St. Louis, MO to embark on a journey like none other. They were to find an all-water passage from one side of the contigious United States to the other. Although they failed in finding that all-water passage, they were the first people to see the Pacific Ocean. They came back to St. Louis as heroes. They found nearly 1,000 new plants & animals on the journey. During the journey, only one person died. Sgt. Charles Floyd died near what is now Sioux City.

Happy Birthday to the Lewis & Clark Expedition!
