Rivers, Edens, Empires: Lewis & Clark and the Revealing of America

A premiere exhibition that focuses on western exploration, Rivers, Edens, Empires: Lewis & Clark and the Revealing of America is scheduled to open at the Library of Congress in July 2003. For the Internet community, the Library of Congress has provided an online exhibit featuring some of the artifacts that will showcase at the actual exhibition, along with background information on each piece. A few of the artifacts users will encounter on this site include a 1785 map of western North America drawn by Peter Pond, Thomas Jefferson's "Cipher for the Lewis & Clark expedition," Clark's compass and case, his drawings of Indian canoes, and Lewis & Clark's track map. Although a brief overview, this site is great for those wanting a sneak preview of the actual exhibit, and may spark enough interest to inspire some to attend the exhibition next year.
