Hon. Meriwether LEWIS Gov. Louisiana Territory

18 Aug 1774 - 11 Oct 1809

ID Number: I22480

  • TITLE: Hon.
  • OCCUPATION: Famous Explorer & 1st Gov Of US LA Territory
  • RESIDENCE: VA; LA; MO; TN
  • BIRTH: 18 Aug 1774, Locust Hill, Middlesex, Virginia [111758]
  • DEATH: 11 Oct 1809, Died on the Natchez Trace at Griner's Stand, TN [111759]
  • RESOURCES: See: LDS [S714] [S762] [S1975] [S2320]
Father: William LEWIS
Mother: Lucy MERIWETHER


Notes


The most well known death along the "Trace" is the death of Meriwether Lewis, Governor of the (U. S.) Louisiana Territory. This man, famous as a leader of the Lewis and Clark expedition, allegedly committed suicide at Griner's Stand. That part of the Natchez Trace between Nashville, TN & above Florence, AL.


Some believe he was murdered.


The Natchez Road, later called the Natchez Trace, developed in the early 1800s.
Originally, it was a series of linked game trails, latter used by America's First People.
The two major First Peoples that controlled the area through which the Natchez Road ran were the Choctaw and the Chickasaw.


In the early 1800s, many Tennessee and Kentucky farmers would take their farm goods to the lucrative New Orleans market. They built flatboats for their goods. They floated down the Cumberland, Duck and Tennessee Rivers to the Ohio River, then to the Mississippi River and southward to Natchez and New Orleans.


When is was time to return, the flatboats would be sold, or if necessary, abandoned. If they had made a good sale, they might buy a horse for their return trip. If the sale was bad, they might return on foot. In any case, in those early years, the route of choice was the Natchez Trace. When the Kentuckians arrived at Nashville, they would continue to central Kentucky via the "Wilderness Road."


It is these return trips that have made the Natchez Trace famous (or perhaps infamous would be a better choice of words here). There are stories of murders along the Natchez Trace. The farmers would be killed, then disemboweled, their body cavities filled with stones, and then the bodies would be submerged in some nameless creek.


To the farmer, the stands or wayside inns would be a welcome sight. Even the most rude stand could offer some protection and a meager meal.


The most well known death along the "Trace" is the death of Meriwether Lewis, Governor of the (U. S.) Louisiana Territory. This man, famous as a leader of the Lewis and Clark expedition, allegedly committed suicide at Griner's Stand.


The stands shown on our map represent the most well know stands, but be aware that the stands came and went, and some changed names. Not all of these stands existed with these names at the same time. Additionally, in places along the route there were parallel roads. A lower road might be easier in the summer, but less favorable in the early spring.

"Meriwether Lewis was born in Albemarle County, Virginia, on August 18, 1774, the second child and first son of William and Lucy Meriwether Lewis. His father, who had served as a lieutenant in the Continental Army, died in November 1779 after his horse fell into an icy stream while he was homeward bound. His widowed mother married another Army officer, Captain John Marks, six months later. The two raised Meriwether and his two siblings while managing a 1,000-acre plantation about 10 miles from Monticello (Jefferson's home). The young Lewis was said to have an eye for plants, which was encouraged by his mother Lucy, a noted herb doctor. Colonial Families, Volume III, Meriwether Family, Pages 318-319."


Captain Meriwether Lewis
by Dick Cheatham


"Lewis and Clark." Everyoneís heard of them, especially recently due to the present Bicentennial of their famous expedition. Some people know lots about what they did. But, not many people know Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark well as unique individuals. Iíll try to draw a clearer picture of Captain Lewis here.


Together with their small party between 1803 and 1806, Lewis and Clark did what none had done before. They were the first people to travel from the United States overland, and often by river, all the way to the Pacific and back. Along the way, they made copious notes on everything of possible interest to President Jefferson and the outside world, losing one man (of just under fifty) due to illness in the process. They took the first tangible steps extending Thomas Jeffersonís vision of an "Empire of Liberty" all the way to the west coast.


Perhaps you donít believe this country is an "Empire of Liberty" today. Thatís a matter of personal opinion, values and knowledge (or ignorance). To the extent itís not, itís due to our own choices as citizens, built upon the progressive loss of vision in that dream by American citizens over the past two centuries. Lewis and Clark were believers in that vision. Letís look at Lewisí version of it.


Meriwether Lewis was a person with many strengths and some weaknesses. That certainly puts him in good company. He was a Jeffersonian if ever there was one. Growing up a neighbor of Thomas Jeffersonís in Albemarle County, Virginia, Lewis became President Jeffersonís personal secretary after the "bloodless revolution of 1800," living in the Presidentís House (now called the White House). Lewis was among the handful of people who knew Thomas Jefferson best. He believed, like Jefferson, in the virtue of a democratic republic, one where citizens understand life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and have the courage and energy to act to defend and extend those things.


Along with his mentor and friend, Lewis opposed a powerful highly centralized government run by and benefiting a small aristocratic elite, which was, by contrast, the preference and goal of Federalists such as Alexander Hamilton. Rather Captain Lewis believed that power should remain diffused among citizens more broadly where it originated and where it belonged.


He was so attached to the original republican idea that, in the French style, he wrote his mother as "Cittizen Lucy Markes." (Spelling was not his forte.) One of his first duties as Jeffersonís secretary was to identify for President Jefferson officers in the United States Army with strong Federalist inclinations. The Army had been packed with such men by the two previous Federalist administrations. The standing (regular) army was far too large and that tree needed to be pruned.


When Lewis opened the west for "these" (as opposed to "the") United States he was not doing so in behalf of some typically European-type land grab. He actually believed, with Jefferson, that he was working to extend the reach of liberty to those areas that might otherwise have fallen into the hands of one of the European monarchies very interested in the area between the Mississippi River and the Pacific Ocean.


Meriwether Lewis was a hero. He was a true republican in the best sense of that term. Sadly, if he is remembered at all today, itís usually as a guy in a leather outfit on a camping trip fighting grizzly bears.
