The End of Lewis and Clark Daring Expedition - September 23, 1806

On September 23, 1986, the Lewis and Clark expedition (Corps of Discovery) arrived in St. Louis, Missouri, ending their journey after two years, four months, and ten days.
The expedition, originally intended to determine exactly what was obtained in the Louisiana Purchase, laid much of the groundwork for the Westward Expansion of the United States.
