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.

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.

Truly American

Comments about PBS Lewis & Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery DVD:

I loved this documentary program when it was first broadcast on our PBS affiliate in Birmingham, Alabama. I still love this documentary on exploration of the then "young" American West. The matching book makes the journey all the better. Thank You Ken Burns, Dayton Duncan, all involved in production & certainly PBS for this historical gem.
