The Lewis and Clark Expedition, also called the "Corps of Discovery Expedition" was a two year long journey that began in 1804 and continued until 1806. This expedition marks a pivotal moment in history because it was the first transcontinental journey to the Pacific coast. Thomas Jefferson commissioned the trip and chose two explorers to go on the journey. William Clark and Meriwether Lewis were chosen to lead the expedition. Lewis and Clark were accompanied by dozens of men, and eventually one woman would join them on their trip.
