The Second Corps of Discovery
1811 Journal of the Jackson and Clark Expeditionary Force
Celebrate the Bicentennial Anniversary of the Second Continental Geographic Survey. Follow the adventures of Colonel Andrew Jackson and Brigadier General George Rogers Clark, older brother of Lieutenant William Clark from the failed Lewis and Clark Expedition that mysteriously disappeared in 1806, as they attempted to explore the Louisiana Purchase and reach the Pacific Ocean in 1811. Details of that historic journey survived in the journal of poet and author F. Scott Key, who documented their struggles through an unknown and hostile frontier territory. The retranslation of this sole surviving manuscript offers a definitive record of the expedition, including encounters with Indian tribes and the discovery of a then isolated Empire. Each journal entry from the 367 day adventure has been preserved in an unbroken chronicle with forgotten details never before made public. Take a step back 200 years in honor of the journey that bridged cultures, civilizations, and ushered in a new age of discovery. Forget what you know about History.
