The Lewis and Clark expedition was the first overland exploration to the Pacific coast and back conducted by the United States. The crew was lead by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Also accompanied by Toussaint Charbonneau and Sacajawea. The main goal of the crew was to accurately gain an idea of the resources exchanged in the Louisiana Purchase. The Louisiana Purchase in 1803 created interest in expanding America to the West Coast. Neither France or America knew how much land they had just dealt with and shortly after, a few weeks later. President Thomas Jefferson had Congress collect $2,500 for an expedition to the West Coast. Thomas Jefferson begins writing letters to Meriwether Lewis an Army Captain, containing the main goals Jefferson laid out for the expedition. These goals consist of exploring the Missouri River and course of stream with the Pacific Ocean. Look for what offers the most direct and practicable water way across the continent. In addition he requested the expedition was to learn more about natural resources, inhabitants and places for possibly settlement in the Northwest. As well President Thomas Jefferson requested that the expedition evaluate the potential interference with French Canadian and British trappers and hunters who already settled in the area.

    Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark and 31 other persons comprised the “Permanent Party” of the 1804-1806 Lewis and Clark Expedition. Although many individuals were associated with the military cadre during its 1803-1804 initial stages of travel from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Fort Mandan, North Dakota, only those 33 members who journeyed from Fort Mandan to Fort Clatsop, Oregon, and returned comprised the Permanent Party. In addition, there was a 34th member – Seaman, Captain Lewis’ “dogg of the Newfoundland breed.”

    Slaves in the French sugar colony of Saint-Domingue (today''s Haiti) launch a massive uprising against the island''s planters and French colonial rule.

    The French revolutionary assembly in Paris abolishes slavery in all French colonies, hoping to gain the loyalty of ex-slave leaders such as Toussaint Louverture in order to resist invasion attempts from Spain and England against Saint-Domingue.

    While we may have William Clark to thank for mapping the Western half of the United States, his grandson also contributed quite a bit to American culture—especially if you like horse racing.

    Meriwether Lewis Clark, Jr. (his father was named after William's Clark’s expedition partner) was not quite 6 years old when his mother died. Afterwards, the elder Meriwether Lewis Clark sent Jr., whom they called "Lutie," to live with his aunt in Louisville, Kentucky. As one of the founding families of Kentucky, his mother’s side of the family was wealthy, and they introduced him to the world of horse breeding. In 1872, Lutie attended the Epsom Derby in England—and a light bulb went off in his head. Why couldn’t he create a horse racing event in Kentucky?

    Meriwether Lewis and William Clark led the first United States expedition (1804–1806) to the Pacific Coast. Though Jefferson stated in one letter the goal was to find a "direct & practicable water communication across this continent, for the purposes of commerce" (the Northwest Passage), the expedition actually had several goals. In order to make a firm claim of “discovery” to the Pacific Northwest and compete with the British for control of land and the fur trade, Jefferson had the men follow the rivers, map them, and collect scientific data. Jefferson also placed special importance on declaring U.S. sovereignty over the tribes along the Missouri River and getting an accurate sense of the resources in the Louisiana Purchase. Although the expedition did make notable achievements in science, scientific research itself was not the main goal behind the mission. References to Lewis and Clark "scarcely appeared" in history books even during the United States centennial in 1876 and the expedition was largely forgotten despite having had a significant impact on increasing American owned land.

    1590s, "short non-fiction literary composition" (first attested in writings of Francis Bacon, probably in imitation of Montaigne), from Middle French essai "trial, attempt, essay," from Late Latin exagium "a weighing, weight," from Latin exigere "test," from ex- "out" (see ex- ) + agere (see act ) apparently meaning here "to weigh." The suggestion is of unpolished writing.

    "to put to proof, test the mettle of," late 15c., from Middle French essaier , from essai (see essay (n.)). This sense has mostly gone with the divergent spelling assay. Meaning "to attempt" is from 1640s. Related: Essayed ; essaying.

    The expedition of Lewis and Clark blazed the trail west and opened the eyes and imaginations of Americans toward expanding the nation s borders from coast to coast. Thus the United States would embrace the ideal of Manifest Destiny and the idea of rugged individualism and set forth to conquer the last frontier. It allowed a growing population hungry for land to call their own to achieve their dream, allowed the economy to grow in the creation of the cattle industry and grain farming. It made the United States what it is today and it came at the expense of the Native American populations who lived there and eradicated the vast Buffalo herds as well.
