Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: March 28, 2018 04:38 PM
From: Senator Elder A. Vogel, Jr.
To: All Senate members
Subject: Eastern Legacy of the Lewis and Clark National Trail
In the near future I will be introducing a resolution encouraging Congress to accept the conclusions of the National Park Service in recognizing the Eastern Legacy of the Lewis and Clark National Trail for its historic national significance.

The route of preparation, recruitment and travel – the Eastern Legacy – was not recognized in the original national historic trail. In 2008, the National Park Service was authorized to study potential areas for inclusion in the national trail. Three segments were identified as meeting the criteria for national significance. One of those three segments included the Ohio River, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Louisville, Kentucky. Meriwether Lewis began keeping his historic journals when he departed Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and noted several Pennsylvania sites on his journey to the West.

The inclusion of these Eastern Legacy Segments deemed nationally significant along the Lewis and Clark National Trail is not only historically significant and appropriate, but may have a positive economic impact on those sites.

Please join me in cosponsoring this resolution.

Introduced as SR326
