Biography/HistorySamuel Lewis was a cartographer who was active in the late 18th and early 19th century. This map, which allowed all Americans to view the trail of the explorers, was one of his most important pieces. Clark's measurements on the course of the expedition were somewhat inaccurate, but he brought back a great deal more knowledge about the geography of the northern plains than had been previously available in the United States. Note the multiple chains of mountains that form the Rocky Mountains, the longer and more complex course of the Missouri River and the location of the Red River.
