“Thomas Jeffersonís intellectual curiosity drew him into an accelerating, three-hundred-year-old quest to find a water route to Asia. To understand Jeffersonís views of the West and the nature of the quest to the Pacific, the University of Virginia Library and the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation have put together an exhibition and book of maps and journals. Lewis and Clark: The Maps of Exploration 1507-1814 examines the planning of the Lewis and Clark Expedition and the cartographic tradition that made the expedition possible. The exhibition shows the evolving views of the American continent and the ‘Passage to the Indies’ as they appear in maps up to the Lewis and Clark Expedition.”
