Death of Meriwether Lewis’s
Meriwether Lewis, who drove the celebrated around the world Lewis and Clark Expedition nearby William Clark, came back to St. Louis, Missouri in 1807, after his long trek through the tremendous Pacific Northwest. For a year or something like that, he fiddled with legislative issues and was designated legislative leader of the Upper Louisiana Territory by his companion, President Thomas Jefferson. On September 3, 1809, he set out for Washington, D.C. to settle some business matters. In any case, he never made it there alive.
