 Lewis and Clark in Iowa by Donald C. Shurr

Many casual readers of history believe the most significant events of the Lewis and Clark?s Corps of Discovery occurred in the further western states of Montana, Idaho and Oregon. But during their expedition they had spent a considerable amount of time in the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase/Territory and within that an area that became the state of Iowa. The month long period the expedition spent in Iowa is a proud part of our heritage. Don hopes by examining and sharing the Corps activities in Iowa it will inspire others to learn more about these important events in Iowa that played a vital role in our national heritage.

Donald G. Shurr PT, CPO is a retired physical therapist and prosthetist/orthotist, 44 years working in University of Iowa Healthcare systems.
