LEWIS AND CLARK GUILD QUEST
On February 28, 1803, President Thomas Jefferson got approval by the Congress for an expedition to explore the uncharted lands of the west. Meriweather Lewis and William Clark and 31 other people began the journey which would take several years. Originally given $2500, the final cost for this trip came to $38,000. Starting out on May 14, 1804, from St. Louis, Missouri, the crew left with a keelboat and two dugouts on the Missouri River and reached the Pacific Ocean in 1805.
