President Thomas Jefferson selected his Virginia neighbor, Meriwether Lewis, as his personal secretary and to lead the expedition. Lewis prepared for the journey under Jefferson's tutelage in North American geography, botany, mineralogy, astronomy, and ethnology. Prior to departing for St. Louis in 1803, Capt. Clark studied under America's leading scientists in Philadelphia. (courtesy of Monticello/Thomas Jefferson Foundation, Inc.,
