This day in history: Lewis & Clark

205 years ago today; August 31, 1803, at 11 a.m. local time, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark (Lewis and Clark) left Pittsburgh. Their destination was the Pacific Ocean.
On November 20, 1805, they achieved that goal.

A significant day in history, and worthy of a tribute like this one by NW Limited…History in VogueTM:

Autographs for sale

Have a spare $100,000 lying around?
If so, you could be the owner of a unique, historic document from 1809, signed by both Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, best known for their expedition to the Pacific in 1804-1806.
The document, a land sale by Lewis, was witnessed by Clark, and is rare for the simple fact that it does bear both signatures on the same sheet of paper. It comes from the collection of Dr. Robert Small of New York.
An interesting observation is that the sale and signing was just a few weeks prior to Lewis’ death on the Natchez Trace in Tennessee.
So get your numbers, and break out those checkbooks; the document is anticipated to sell for $80,000 to $120,000.  Tomorrow, April 3rd is the auction date!


On the other hand, a NW Limited…History in VogueTM Lewis and Clark States, Indian Nations or Black map complete with the signature of William Brooks III, their creator, is easily acquired for $250.00!
Here’s what one lucky owner had to say when they received their Lewis & Clark “Indian Nations” map:

“I am just FLOORED!!!!!!! I received the package you sent out to me this morning and I am truly humbled!!!! What a GORGEOUS piece of history!!!!!! Man….I am pretty much speechless……hubby was with me when I opened it and he just sat there staring at it. Then I told him all about it and he was amazed that you did up this intricate piece!!!  How did I deserve such an awesome piece of artwork like this???? OMG!!!!
It’s so complete!!! You did the frame too, right? It’s even got the mounting rope in the back. It all looks so “time period”!! It will have a place in my livingroom for sure! Time to redecorate and move some wall hangings around.
I feel so humbled to now own a piece of history like this……this is just AMAZING!!!! Thank you 100 times over!!!!!
Thank you for creating such a beautiful piece that we will cherish and display in our home with pride!
I LOVED the box frame it came in. Hubby was looking at it in and out…and was very impressed. He’s like “wow” this and that….”wow”…this and more of that…!!!”

That kind of reaction’s worth a million bucks, right?
