No. Thomas Jefferson, the President of the United States, commissioned him and Clark to take the famous expedition.


Before Lewis met up with Clark, he began the expedition on August 30, 1803 in Pittsburgh PA. Lt. William Clark would offer to join Lewis on the expedition weeks later on October 13, 1803 at Camp Dubois (in present-day Indiana). In spring 1805, they continued to the headwaters of the Missouri River, struggled across the Continental Divide, and headed west along the Salmon, Snake, and Columbia Rivers to the Pacific. The expedition then ended on September 23, 1806 upon their return to St. Louis from Oregon. So the expedition took about 3 years.


Pros: the opportunity to learn about the territory we had purchased, including the geography and the Native Americans who lived there.Cons: the expense to the federal government of setting up the expedition. The danger to Lewis and Clark and their team. The length of time it would take before they would return.

To answer that question, I have to say first that it did not begin in St. Louis, because before Lewis met up with Clark, he began the expedition on August 30, 1803 in Pittsburgh PA. Lt. 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'. From there, they sailed down the Ohio River towards St. Louis. The expedition then ended on September 23, 1806 upon their return to St. Louis from Oregon.If you say the expedition began on October 13, 1803 when Clark joined in, the expedition took more or less 25,790 hours.If you say the expedition began when Lewis first left Pittsburgh on August 30, 1803, then the expedition took more or less 26,880 hours.



Right around 2 years. They left on May 21st 1804 and returned on September 9th 1806
