Louisiana. Lewis

In 1803, Louisiana, a vast region west to Mississippi River, was purchased from French in the time of Jefferson’s presidency. This purchase had enormous impact on the history of the United States (Andrew Cayton, Linda Reed, Elisabeth Istaels Perry, Allan M. Winkler, 2002). The Congress then agreed to finance the expedition to explore the area of Louisiana. Lewis and Clark were then appointed to this mission to search the possible way to the Pacific Ocean through the river routes. In 1804 this mission began. The expedition of Lewis and Clark was successful in finding the passage to the Pacific Ocean. Lewis and Clark returned east by September 1806 and successfully gathered the information of the West.
