Jefferson had been unsuccessful in previous attempts to sponsor exploration of the western part of the continent. He believed, however, in a nation that stretched from “Sea to Shining Sea” and the Louisiana Purchase would represent the first opportunity to achieve his vision. This great president from neighboring Albemarle County, along with a young man named Meriwether Lewis, who grew up within sight of Monticello, led the way, supported by many of the families from today’s Nelson County.
