During their visit to Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, students will explore the historical courthouse and the museum exhibits related to the French founding of St. Louis. Exhibits also include information regarding native American and settler relations and the Louis and Clark expedition. Students will also take a short hike to the Jefferson Expansion Memorial and better understand its symbolism.
