President Thomas Jefferson called upon Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark to assemble a crew and coordinate an expedition into the wilderness that lay beyond the Missouri in what is now Illinois. They assembled a diverse group of people and called them the "Corps of Discovery."

The three year journey took them across the country to the Pacific Ocean and resulted in the recording of nearly 1,000,000 words. Along with documentary information, the corps recorded weather data, geography, native cultures, and descriptions of animal and plant specimens that they collected during the journey.

The wildflower varieties above are examples of discoveries made by the expedition. They are a perfect way to incorporate a bit of history into your daily life.
