In Their Footsteps
What Killed Lewis?
Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, Fort Clatsop is pleased to announce the next In Their Footsteps free speaker series event. This program is What Killed Lewis? Viable Theories or Fantasy? A Closer Look at the Prevailing Ideas in 2013 presented by David Peck, D.O. on Sunday, May 19, at 1:00 p.m.
Captain Meriwether Lewis died in October 1809, just three years after the expedition. Some people believe it was suicide and others argue that it was homicide. Dr. Dave Peck will lead a lively discussion on the current theories of what happened that night in Tennessee.
Dr. Peck is the author of Or Perish in the Attempt- The Hardship and Medicine of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, published by Bison Books/University of Nebraska Press in 2011. This book is available for purchase at the Lewis & Clark National Park Association bookstore in the visitor center. Dr. Peck will have a book-signing following his presentation.
This monthly Sunday forum is sponsored by the Lewis & Clark National Park Association and the park. These programs are held in the Netul River Room of Fort Clatsop’s visitor center and are free of charge.
