The Second Corps of Discovery: 1811 Journal of the Jackson and Clark Expeditionary Force. The Lewis and Clark Expedition was considered lost. The Louisiana Purchase had yet to be claimed. The Pacific Coast remained an uncharted mystery. England prepared to invade the United States of America. Tecumseh was unifying Indian Nations for a major rebellion. The Union faced dissolution as the result of internal turmoil. President Madison formed a Second Corps of Discovery. The Expedition traveled West in search of answers. But nothing prepared them for the truth. Celebrate the Bicentennial Anniversary of the Second Continental Geographic Survey. Follow the adventures of Colonel Andrew Jackson and Brigadier General George Rogers Clark, older brother of Lieutenant William Clark from the failed Lewis and Clark Expedition that mysteriously disappeared in 1806, as they attempted to explore the Louisiana Purchase and reach the Pacific Ocean in 1811. Details of that historic journey survived in the journal of honored poet and author F. Scott Key, who documented their struggles through an unknown and hostile frontier territory. The re-translation of this sole surviving manuscript offers a definitive record of the expedition, including encounters with Indian tribes and the discovery of a then unknown Asian Empire. Each journal entry from the 367 day adventure has been preserved in an unbroken chronicle with forgotten details never before made public. Take a step back 200 years in honor of the journey that bridged cultures, civilizations, and ushered in a new age of discovery. Forget what you know about History.
