George Rogers Clark
In 1803, President Thomas Jefferson asked Meriwether Lewis to lead an exploration of the Louisiana Territory in search of a Northwest Passage. Lewis invited William Clark to join him. It would become one of the most famous partnerships in history, and it started in Indiana.
If not for George Rogers Clark, we Hoosiers might snack on scones with jam and clotted cream and speak with cockney accents.
Roman Catholics claim bragging rights to Indiana’s oldest church. Jesuit missionaries visited the French fort at Vincennes within months of its establishment in 1732. A resident priest, Sebastian Meurin, arrived in 1748. People have been worshiping at St. Francis Xavier Church ever since.
The oldest city in Indiana is home to the George Rogers Clark Memorial, a tribute to the Colonial hero behind one of the most decisive battles of the Revolutionary War.
