L6 Bicentennial of Lewis and Clark
Issue Date: November 24, 2005
On November 24, 2005, the Marshall Islands Postal Service
issues a sixth set of three stamps marking the 200th Anniversary of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
On May 14, 1804, Lewis and Clark's Corps of Discovery embarked upon one of the most
remarkable endeavors in American history: an expedition exploring the uncharted West all the way to the Pacific. Leaving from Saint Charles, Missouri, the Corps traveled over 4,000 miles,
reaching its Pacific destination on November 24, 1805.
The new stamps, designed by world-renowned artists Paul and Chris Calle, depict key events in the Expedition's journey, including:
First Vote Allowed to All shows members of the Corps of Discovery voting on the destination of their winter camp. Should they continue to search for the Columbia's northern bank, or cross over
to the southern side? The entire party, including York and Sacagawea, voted unanimously to cross over to the southern bank.
Leaving Fort Clatsop portrays Lewis and Clark presenting Fort
Clatsop, their winter camp, to Coboway, the Clatsop chief (described by Lewis as "much more kind an hospitable to us than other Indian in this neighbourhood.") After loading their canoes, they
headed up the Columbia River and started the return home.
At Pompey's Pillar shows Clark carving his name and the date, July 25, 1806, into the massive sandstone rock he dubbed "Pompy's
Tower." Clark discovered evidence that the local Indians used it as a sacred site. His carving remains today.
