Thomas Jefferson became president (1801) and bought Louisiana from France (1803) with almost 2,150,000 square kilometers of unexplored land, with which the US doubled its surface. It was time to carry out expeditions to trace trade routes that linked the Atlantic and Pacific.
Lewis, a personal friend of President Jefferson, and Clark, a former member of the Continental Army, with vast experience in the fight against the Indians, lead the expedition of the Corps of Expeditioners.
It begins in May 1804 in Saint Louis, they go up the Missouri River by canoe and arrive at the end of autumn of that same year in what is now known as North Dakota, to an Indian village where they build a small fort to spend the winter. They are joined by a French-Canadian couple Toussaint Charbonneau and his wife Sacawagea, from the Shoshón tribe, who would be of great help as an interpreter for the Indians they meet on the journey. They cross the hardest part of the route on horseback, Las Rocosas, where they lose most of the animals, from there in 5 canoes they reach Columbia going up the Snake River, which led them to the Pacific in November 1805, in March 1806 they began the way back to Saint Louis.
His journals devote much space to precise and picturesque observations of great scientific value. They saw bison for the first time in South Dakota. They observed 20,000 heads of these animals from a hill. On one occasion they had to wait an hour for a herd to finish crossing a river. Near Tarbox Hollow they saw the prairie dog they called a barking squirrel. In North Dakota they killed a grizzly bear, which the Indians had heard about for its ferocity. To cross the Great Falls they built wagons whose wheels were cross sections of cottonwoods from Virginia. During the crossing of the Rockies, food was scarce and they obtained dried salmon and cooked camash roots from the Nez Perce Indians, which made them seriously ill.
The mission started in 1804 had a journey of almost 13,000 kilometers.
