Lewis and Clark - After the Corps of Discovery

Lewis and Clark remained friends until the end.  Meriwether became governor of the Upper Louisiana Territory, but three years after the expedition was over, he died of gunshot wounds.  Many historians believe he took his own life, but not everyone agrees.

William Clark became governor of the Missouri Territory and had ten children.  He named his first son Meriwether Lewis Clark.
