The most notable expedition in U.S. history was led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, with soldiers, an African-American slave, a female guide, and Canadian boatmen. Ken Burns' LEWIS & CLARK re-creates the 1803 journey to locate the Northwest Passage. The explorers found a varied landscape and a dizzying diversity of Indian peoples.

I grew up in St.Louis and learned about Lewis & Clark early in my school years, so their travels were "old hat" and of no particular interest to me. I figured I had heard it all before. When Ken Burns came out with LEWIS & CLARK: THE JOURNEY... I figured I'd have a look just because it was a Ken Burns special, but I was hooked after the first episode!! I couldn't wait for the next and then the next, etc. What a documentary!! Why didn't my fifth grade teacher teach us like that? I might have enjoyed American History more than I did.

When Ken Burns shows you the only remaining evidence of the journey, the inscription on Pompeys Pillar, he shows the inscription mockup that was in the visitor's center at that time, not the real thing. I don't know why because the inscription is very clear. Maybe it was a mixup in editing. Look at the J-u portion of July on what he shows compared to the real thing. The only evidence of the expedition still remaining on the trail and he doesn't show it! He shows the imitation.

              As a student of Lewis & Clark and professional tour guide in the Western U.S,, I really appreciate the accurate and concise account of this historic chapter in our history. Ken Burns and PBS continue to bring to life the journals of these important explorers! Well done!!

                    We had missed seeing this program on PBS, so we bought a copy and could not be more pleased that we did. It was very beautifully photographed and wonderfully written. We were so absorbed with it that we brought out our atlas to follow along as the members of the expedition made their way West.
