Lewis and Clark


Did you know…

…that Lewis and Clark settled in Saint Louis after their return from their Expedition? Meriwether Lewis was the first governor of The Louisiana Territory in 1807. William Clark was appointed general of the territorial militia with primary responsibility for Indian Affairs. Lewis died two years later. During the War of 1812, in which William Clark led several campaigns, the Missouri Territory was established with Clark as its governor. He retained that post until Missouri statehood. Clark lived in Saint Louis the remainder of his life.

Governor Clark appears in Duke In Name Only.
