The Preparation

By Jillian G.
Ohio, Age 13

I am reporting Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Much of there preparation involved education; Lewis would learn astronomy, botany, navigation, medicine and biology, among other scientific disciplines. Mathematical Instruments, Camp Supplies, Presents for Indians, Clothing, Ammunition, Medicine and Medical Supplies, and Traveling Library. Lewis and Clark recruited men for there expedition. This was important because they need new lands and become friends with the land owning Indians. They need to no the mapping/ landforms and navigations of the land.
