梅裡韋瑟路易斯 (Meriwether Lewis) 及威廉克拉克 (William Clark) 最為人所津津樂道的是他們的一趟從密西西比河到西海岸的探險。這段稱為探索部隊 (Corps of Discovery) 的探險是湯瑪斯傑弗遜用來探勘美國西部的一個充滿遠見的計劃。此一探險計劃始於18044月,結束於18069月。探險開始之前,路易斯是傑弗遜的私人總統祕書。他也曾在軍中服役並因而結識了克拉克。。探險結束之後,路易斯死前曾任短期的路易斯安那州北部地區州長;克拉克已過世多年並曾任職多個政府職位,包括印地安事務主管及密蘇里地區州長。

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.
