October Program from the Historical Society of Frabkford

The October program of the Historical Society of Frankford will be live-streamed at 7:30 on October 12, 2021.  Political Science Professor Stephen E. Medvec, Ph.D., of Holy Family University, will discuss the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

After President Jefferson purchased the French claim to a substantial portion of North America, he commissioned fellow Virginians Meriwether Lewis and William Clark to go exploring, and report back on the native tribes, wildlife, and terrain.

This turned out to be one of the great non-military adventures of American history, and also a Tale of Two Cities, because while the expedition was to set out from Charlottesville, only Philadelphia had outfitters with sufficient supplies and equipment. Furthermore, as Mr. Jefferson was President of the American Philosophical Society (APS) at the same time that he was President, the Journals of the Expedition ended up in the Special Collections Library of APS in Philadelphia, where Prof. Medvec studied them in order to produce this talk.

This program will remain available as a video on both Facebook and YouTube indefinitely.
