梅里韦瑟路易斯 (Meriwether Lewis) 及威廉克拉克 (William Clark) 最为人所津津乐道的是他们的一趟从密西西比河到西海岸的探险。这段称为探索部队 (Corps of Discovery) 的探险是托马斯杰弗逊用来探勘美国西部的一个充满远见的计划。此一探险计划始于18044月,退出于18069月。探险开始之前,路易斯是杰弗逊的私人总统秘书。他也曾在军中服役并因而结识了克拉克。。探险退出之后,路易斯死前曾任短期的路易斯安那州北部地区州长;克拉克已过世多年并曾任职多个政府职位,包括印地安事务主管及密苏里地区州长。

Meriwether Lewis and William Clark are best known for their expedition from the Mississippi River to the West Coast and back. The expedition, called the Corps of Discovery, was President Thomas Jefferson's visionary project to explore the American West. It began in May of 1804 and ended in September 1806. Before the expedition, Lewis was Jefferson's private presidential secretary. He also served in the military, where he met Clark. After the expedition, Lewis served a short term as Governor of the Territory of Upper Louisiana before he died. Clark lived for many years and held various government positions, including Superintendent of Indian Affairs and Governor of the Missouri Territory.
