Meriwether Lewis, Journey into the Unknown | a FREE Chautauqua History Alive show

Where
100 Pine Knoll Dr, Greenville, SC 29609 [ Map ]
Description
FREE show and free parking.

A Chautauqua History Alive performance by Brian Fox Ellis from Chicago as Meriwether Lewis. Get ready for the best Road Trip in American history! Join us as Captain Meriwether Lewis goes on the Greatest Adventure of his life - up the Missouri, across the Rockies, to the end of Land. It's a journey into the unknown - more unknown than the moon was to the astronauts at a time when nothing moved faster than a horse. It's a compelling portrayal that reveals Lewis not only as a brilliant commander, dedicated scientist, consummate frontiersman and savvy businessman, but also as a troubled soul. You'll laugh - you'll be challenged - you'll have lots of questions. And Meriwether Lewis will answer them.
