In 1803, having gathered supplies and equipment in Pittsburgh, Meriwether Lewis launched out onto the Ohio River, planning to meet with William Clark in Louisville, Kentucky for the Corps of Discovery. The period spent in preparation for that meeting is called the Eastern Legacy. Steubenville was one of the "stops" that Lewis made on his way along the Ohio River. To learn more about that and the other places along the journey see this guide, Lewis & Clark Eastern Legacy.
