I wonder why Sgt. Floyd's monument is so much larger and better kept than that of Meriwether Lewis? I rode to Hohenwald, Tn today to see Lewis' gravesite and monument, as well as the site of his death, after having read through this entire thread and becoming more interested in the subject than I ever had been. For such an important part of history, both the life of the man himself, as well as his untimely and mysterious death, the site was rather discreet. I did enjoy the ride though, and enjoyed telling my riding buddy all about the original expedition and the goals and importance of the Louisiana Purchase, or at least as much as I could remember and that he'd sit still for haha.
