About This Map
Prepared by William Clark and printed in 1814 by Samuel Lewis (no relation to Meriwether Lewis), this is the first detailed map of the American west and is based directly on the discoveries of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The map covers the entire route of the expedition, from Saint Louis in the lower right to the Pacific Coast in the upper left (including the Missouri, Snake and Columbia Rivers), and contains a more detailed rendering of the Rocky Mountains than any previous map. The map includes annotations of the names, locations, and populations of numerous Native American tribes. The expedition's routes across the Rocky Mountains are also indicated.
