Lewis and Clark

Between 1803 and 1806, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark led President Jefferson's Corps of Discovery to the great American West. On November 23, 1803, they stopped at Cape Girardeau to deliver letters of introduction to Louis Lorimier. Captain Lewis found him presiding at a horse race. Later that evening, Lewis dined with Lorimier and his Shawnee wife Charlotte and was impressed by the beauty of one of their daughters.
