In September 1806 Meriwether Lewis along with William Clark received a hero’s welcome as he entered St. Louis. At 33, Lewis was a national hero. Just three years later he was dead, shot twice in a small cabin in the Tennessee wilderness. Who shot him has been one of the longest lingering murder mysteries in American history.
Maybe the best accent to start off an episode of the show yet. I wasn’t aware that this murder mystery existed and after reading the story I now understand why it never showed up on my radar.
