Thomas Jefferson had dreamed of exploring the West for at least 20 years before he even became President. In 1783 he had asked William Clark's brother, George Rogers Clark, to take on the challenge. George declined, and after the Louisiana territory was purchased, Jefferson asked Lewis. Clark would meet Lewis at Camp Dubois and introduce himself as the brother of George Rogers Clark. William had plenty of experience concerning boat navigation and had gathered a group of men to join. Lewis accepted his offer, not only for the extra manpower, but Clark would also help keep the journals and notes updated.

The first entry in the Lewis and Clark Expedition Journals state that the journey began in Pittsburgh, PA on August 30, 1803. Lewis, who had been assigned by Jefferson sailed down the Ohio River with supplies towards St. Louis. William Clark would offer to join Lewis on the expedition weeks later on October 13, 1803 at Camp Dubois (in present-day Indiana). They then named their team the "Corps of Discovery."


In January of 1803, Jefferson requested $2500 from Congress to pay for the costs of the trip. Thomas Jefferson then commissioned Capt. Meriwether Lewis (his presidential aide) to explore the newly purchased Louisiana Territory. This territory is what is now the northwest United States.
