R.I.P. Meriwether Lewis

I’m sure he would like nothing more, but it doesn’t appear Meriwether Lewis’ distant relatives agree. They want him dug up to prove that he didn’t commit suicide.

This fight to settle the dispute over whether Lewis was murdered or committed suicide isn’t new, as it was discussed at various times during the 200th anniversary celebration of the Lewis & Clark Expedition. It probably won’t go away anytime soon, either, so follow the saga here.
