    1. Who was the U.S. President who ordered the expedition?

    President Thomas Jefferson was the U.S. President who ordered the expedition.

    (湯瑪斯傑佛遜)

    2. What territory had the United States purchased from France in 1803?

    The United States had purchased the Louisiana Territory from France in 1803.

    (路易斯安那)

    3. What was the purpose of the expedition?

    Much of the new territory was unexplored. Jefferson hoped that the expedition would be able to find the elusive Northwest Passage, a water route across the country, which would be a great boon to commerce. But for the members of the Corps of Discovery, their purpose was peaceful -- exploration, diplomacy, and science.

    (許多的地區未經開發;傑佛遜希望探險隊可以在荒僻的西北部找到一條水路以利經商貿易;對於探險隊成員而言,他們的目的是探險、外交和科學。)

    4. Who was Sacajawea?

    Sacagawea was a Shoshone woman acted as an Interpretess for the Corps of Discovery, helped negotiate for horses from her Native tribe, even saved the expedition journals from a capsized boat and most importantly she was a symbol of peace.

    (沙卡加威是一位休休尼族的印地安女人,為探險隊擔任翻譯,為其協商取得馬匹,甚至從翻覆的船上救回了寶貴的探險日誌;最重要的是她是和平的象徵)

    5. What route did Lewis and Clark follow?

    They traveled up the Missouri River to its source in the western mountains and beyond to the Pacific Ocean.

    (探險隊沿著密蘇里河溯源而上至西部山區並翻山越嶺直抵太平洋)

    6. What important discoveries did they make?

    The Corps of Discovery returned with a great deal of knowledge about the new United States territory west of the Mississippi -- the people, the land, the rivers, the mountains, the plants and animals. The expedition made important contributions to the mapping of the North American continent.

    (探險隊帶回大量有關密西西比河以西的新知。也對北美大陸的版圖繪製有很大的貢獻)
