The 1995 exhibition was the brainchild of Guy Benson, a member of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation. In the summer of 1995, the foundation met in Charlottesville to acknowledge Jefferson’s hometown as the beginning of that trail. Mr. Benson wanted to create an exhibition that would display the maps that Jefferson had owned as he planned the Lewis and Clark expedition.
