I get interested in one thing or another at different times, but I don't think I have a primary interest in any one aspect of history. Lewis and Clark kind of interests me. I can't say they really accomplished anything important. The West was going to get settled whether they went on their trip or not, but it was one Hell of a camping trip. All they did was explore the Missouri River and the Columbia River. As far as what was in the West, they missed most of it, and most of what they explored is still in the least populated and poorest areas of the US. When they filed their final report, the president must have read it and thought, "You know, I think we really got fucked on that Louisiana property. I bet the French are laughing their asses off on that one."
