Lewis and Clark went on an expedition to survey the newly purchased Louisiana Territory. It took them more than one year and over 3,000 miles to reach the Pacific Ocean. They left in May of 1804 and reached the Pacific Ocean in November of 1805. They returned back to St. Louis in September 1806. As you will see Lewis and Clark text messaged President Jefferson. You can see some of the things that the Corps of discovery found along the way.
