Join Jim Holmberg for this illustrated lecture on the Lewis and Clark Expedition. This epic journey of 1803 to 1806 across the American West to the Pacific had a very important Eastern Legacy as well as its more famous Western Legacy. The expedition didn’t spring from nothing at the mouth of the Missouri; and an important part of that story is the crucial role that the Falls of Ohio and local recruits played in the success of the expedition. It is a story that stretches from sea to shining sea.
