Meriwether Lewis

a.k.a. Captain Meriwether Lewis

Author Code: AMLX

Born: Aug. 18, 1774 - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA

Died: Oct. 11, 1809 - Near Nashville, Tennessee, USA

Army captain and secretary to Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson selected Lewis to lead an expedition to explore the recently acquired territories of Louisiana. Lewis in turn selected an army friend, William Clark, to share the command of the expedition. In 1807 Lewis was appointed governor of the Louisiana Territory. In 1809, Lewis, on route to Washington from St. Louis to prepare the expedition report for official publication, died suddenly at an inn in central Tennessee. The official Journals were published in 1814. There has been much conjecture over the death of Lewis, but it is not known whether he was murdered or committed suicide (as was thought by Jefferson himself).
