Despite these disappointments, Lewis and Clark did a brilliant job as mapmakers, explorers, anthropologists, botanists, and diplomats: achievements for which we still honor them today.  By the end of Professor Allitt’s lecture, you will better understand who these brave explorers were, how they set about their venture, the most important decisions they made, and the crises they faced together.  You’ll also learn about their return to the “states” after three tough years, by which time many contemporaries assumed they had died somewhere along the trail.
