What happen to Meriweather Lewis?

Next week we will be beginning a reading and writing project concerning the Lewis and Clark Expedition.  I know that you are studying the historical importance of this page in our history in Social Studies.  One of the things I will be asking you to do is to find information and look at this expedition from a different point of view.  There are many interesting side issues to study.  One of those is the death of Meriweather Lewis.  That is what you will be looking at today.

View the following videos.  When you have finished watching I would like you to use the remainder of the period to write a one page summary describing the controversy surrounding Lewis's death.   It is a good idea to take notes and jot-down ideas while watching so that you have facts and information to reference in your writing.
