Meriwether Lewis was best known as the leader of the expedition. He was born on August 18, 1774 in Albemarle County, Virginia. He was the second child and first son of William and Lucy Meriwether Lewis. His mother was widely knowledgeable in herbal medicine and remedies. Meriwether heavily drew information from her mother's teachings during the expedition to the West. Lewis learned much of his backwoods skills when his family moved to Georgia. He would later receive a formal education when he returned to Virginia around the age of 13. In 1795, Lewis joined the Army as an ensign and was stationed under General Wayne in Ohio country. Due to his bad drinking and misconducted behavior, he was transfered to a company of sharpshooters lead by William Clark. The two soon became good friends and gained each other's respect. Lewis rose to lieutenant in 1799 and gained a fairly good reputation. Thomas Jefferson, the former president at the time, appointed Lewis as his private secretary. Jefferson had a dream of exploring the west. He was the actual force that drove the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Meriwether Lewis was then appointed to lead the expedition and of course he accepted. He studied science extensively before embarking on the journey. Lewis was 29 years old when he was chosen to lead the expedition. He knew how to lead men but he wasn't the best leader due to his drinking habits and behavior so he was accompanied by William Clark. Lewis and Clark became one of the most renowned partnerships in American history.

A good example is a question that asks more than one thing. "Where did Lewis and Clark start their journey and who did they meet?" This could be split into: "Where did Lewis and Clark start their journey across America?" & "Who did Lewis and Clark meet on their journey?" Another: "What is the habitat of the badger, do they live in caves and how many babies do they have?" This asks three different questions. Another: "Who is on the Drachma coin and what is one worth?" Again, asks two different things.
