IN OTHER NEWS:
Happy Birthday Number Two: Did you know? Some folks are destined to live in another’s shadow forever. In 1803, at 33 years old, the red-haired planter, military man, and slaveholder William Clark accepted shared command of the Corps of Discovery, which would ultimately claim the Pacific Northwest for the United States. At over 6‑feet tall, he was an imposing man. But, uneducated, his journals were filled with grammatical errors and confusing language, weakening his appeal to readers. His partner Meriwether Lewis was more the leader of the expedition and his engaging journal entries solidified his reputation as such in history. Clark is primarily remembered as Lewis’s second, the one who drew maps and managed supplies. You don’t see a lot of grade schools named “Clark and Lewis.” But that doesn’t mean that on August 1 (that’s today!) you shouldn’t spend a moment reflecting on the expedition in honor of Clark’s birthday.
