Another important turning point in Lewis life was when he decided not to go to college. It wasn’t that he didn’t want to go to college, but that Lewis felt that helping others were more important. On his application for the freedom riders, he wrote, “I know that education is important and I hope to get one, but human dignity is the most important thing in my life.” (Lewis 30) In other words, Lewis was willing to put his entire life on hold in able to help others and stand up for what he believed in. After being told no by his parents, he said, “In Nashville I’d meet people who opened my eyes to a sense of values that would forever dominate my moral philosophy—the way of peace, the way of love, the way of nonviolence.” (Lewis 70) So although Lewis didn’t get to
Meriwether Lewis is the main reason that the United States’ territory extends from the Atlantic Ocean all the way to the Pacific Ocean (“Meriwether Lewis” 2). He has done many great things, but he is best known for exploring the American West (1). He was a great man full of bravery. Meriwether faced tons of dangers in his life but he overcame all of them. Lewis “helped change the face of the United States by exploring uncharted territory- the American West (“Meriwether Lewis” 2).”
Every person experiences specific points in their life that shapes who they are. This can be exhibited in the book March. Throughout the book the life events of John Lewis are displayed and it is clear to see that these events changed him. Even though many of the events in his life may have changed John Lewis, the turning points in John Lewis' life helped make him a more inspired man and more influential in the civil rights movement. John Lewis receives a bible, goes on to be inspired by MLK’s speech, gets arrested for his protests, and stops going home to his family as much all of which motivated him to help and support the civil rights movement.
Meriwether Lewis, an adventures, courageous, and outgoing man. He was an explorer who is most known for exploring the western part of America, after the Louisiana purchase.

The Manhattan Project was created out of the fear of their current enemy, Germany of making the first atomic bomb and using it in the war. The current President of the United States was Franklin Roosevelt. It was seen that Germany was making great advances in the war which worried many. But the people who were very worried were three prestigious scientists. Leo Szilard, Eugene Wigner, and Edward Teller who were Hungarian scientists who immigrated to the United States during the war. Szilard and the other scientists wished to advocate for the start of a program that put all efforts into making an atomic bomb. But of course they were very intelligent on how to get their cause across seriously. “Though the three men, particularly Szilard, were well known
In the book March: Book One and Two, the main character John Lewis takes part in the civil rights movement in 1960’s. While it's true that many events in his life did not increase his devotion to the civil rights movement and religious beliefs, I believe that John Lewis's beliefs and determination were reinforced by the turning points in his life. I believe the gift of his bible helped him grow stronger in religion, which helped him bring a sense of connection to the civil rights movement through Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words. Through that he started going to nonviolent workshops where he learned more about nonviolent protests, which started him on the road to joining the civil rights movement. This eventually pushed him to join the freedom riders.
Meriwether Lewis was one of the travelers that were given the mission of traveling from the colonies to the Pacific Ocean, "The Mission of Discovery". After Lewis got back from the expedition, he was assigned the role of Governor of The upper half of the Louisiana Purchase. When he was appointed to this position, he didn’t instantly go to do the job though. Actually he spent about half a year trying to publish the notes he wrote down during the Mission of Discovery. That didn 't work out though because of financial funds. So Lewis came back to Washington D.C. and got ready to go to his part of the Louisiana territory. But on the way there he stopped at an inn called
Everyone in their life experiences a state of hopelessness. Whether it is a big or a small occurrence; it helps us shape up mentally or physically ready for the real world. In March, Lewis talks about the events in his life that we classify as his turning points which caused them to turn their life around. It is true that many events did not increase his will to protest. I think that John Lewis' life was changed by his turning points, there are four turning points what continues to affect him to this day. The four turning points that stand out are his first arrest, Lewis' trip to Buffalo with his Uncle Otis, Dr. King's speech, and when he decided to join the Freedom Riders.
Meriwether Lewis was a confidant of Thomas Jefferson, who was the 3rd President of the United States. When Jefferson bought Louisiana from Bonaparte, the federal government thought that the land purchased was a “worthless desert.” To prove them wrong, Jefferson commissioned Lewis and Clark’s Mission of Discovery. The expedition went on for 2 years with 3 goals in mind. When Lewis and Clark came back from the expedition, Jefferson put Lewis as the governor of upper Louisiana. Lewis also informed Jefferson of the expedition, and attempted to publish his book. Coming back into Louisiana as the governor, he dealt with financial issues. In D.C., it was rumored that he was embezzling money from Louisiana.
In life you have to work in order to get to the top and others don’t think that in life. It’s easy not to get a high school diploma and you need one to get a nice job, sometimes even at a fast food restaurant. As a football player he was outstanding and was at every play, he was a great player, and every coach wanted him on their team because he was an athlete and knew the game very well.

HOW DID LEWIS DIE ? Merriweather Lewis was part of THE Lewis and Clark pair. Lewis and Clark (plus other explorers of course) explored all over the Louisiana territory the U.S had just purchased. General Wilkinson was the general of the Louisiana territory before the U.S purchased it. General W. assumed he would stay governor and was angered when the president decided to make Lewis the governor.
Meriwether Lewis the governor of the New Louisiana territory. And was the leader of the Lewis and Clark expedition to go and search westward of the United States of America. And on way to Washington D.C his last journey he suddenly died of gunshot wounds at Grinder’s Stand. People for the last 200 years said it was a suicide. But what if I told you I have another theory. That it was murder by conspiracy. That Meriwether Lewis was murdered by conspiracy instead of suicide. And I’m here to tell you why.
Meriwether Lewis was a great founder of most of the U.S during the Lewis & Clark Expedition but is not famously known for he had a sudden and mysterious death. His death was never concluded but they expected it was a suicide. This made him less notable because he died fairly early in his career. This makes the most reasonable cause of death murder. He was governor of Louisiana. Even though it was a lot of work. And when he died he was actually going to talk to president about the money he didn’t have to finance his area. But we’ll get to that later (3 & 4 paragraph). But with the factual and autopsy evidence proves his death was a homicide.
