Episode 1

America's greatest story of adventure, the Corps of Discovery, was led by Lewis and Clark

About Lewis & Clark

The film tells the remarkable story of the entire Corps of Discovery – not just of the two Captains, but the young army men, French-Canadian boatmen, Clark’s African-American slave, and the Shoshone woman named Sacagawea, who brought along her infant son. As important to the story as these many characters, however, was the land itself, and the promises it held.
