University of Virginia Library and the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage
Foundation have put together an exhibition and book of maps and
journals which 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. It focuses especially on the earliest
cartographic representations of America and the Northwest Passage,
the results of early expeditions to the Mississippi basin in search
of a route to the Pacific Ocean, and the early exploration of
the Pacific Northwest.
