History comes to life

Corps of Discovery II: 200 Years to the Future, the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Exhibit, began it's four-year odyssey westward when it opened March 4, 2003, on the Mall in Washington, D.C.

From there the exhibit moved to Harper's Ferry, West Virginia, (March 28-April 18, 2003) where the Lewis and Clark Expedition received army supplies.

Following the route taken by the Expedition 200 years ago, the exhibit will reach the Oregon coast in 2006. For a complete exhibit tour location list and schedule visit www.nps.gov/lecl or contact the National Park Service at 402-514-9311.
