About our Speaker — J. C. McElveen is a retired lawyer, former Program Chair and President of the WMS, and collector of American exploration. He has written and spoken on many map-related topics, and in 2018 he curated an exhibit of his maps and books at the prestigious Grolier Club of New York. The exhibit was entitled Westward the Course of Empire: Exploring and Settling the American West 1803-1869 and included a 155-page catalog
Presentation —"A Romp Through 19th Century Westward Expansion: From Lewis & Clark to Custer’s Last Stand" —In the 73 years between the Louisiana Purchase and the Battle of the Little Bighorn, the United States expanded from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean, and, in the West, from essentially the 32nd parallel of north latitude to the 49th parallel. This expansion encompassed the enormous Louisiana Territory, Texas, the Oregon Country and the Spanish Southwest. At the beginning of the 19th century, this land was essentially unexplored by Americans, with inhabited areas occupied by Native Americans. J. C. will examine, with laser-like precision, barely allowing you to finish your dessert, how and why this expansion occurred, and what happened to the Native American population of the West as a result.
Directions — Maggiano’s is located in Tysons II Galleria Mall - easy to reach from the Beltway. Take I-495 to Exit 46, Virginia Route 123 West, Chain Bridge Road. Turn north on International Drive, then use the mall entrance at Greensboro Drive. Maggiano's is well marked. Parking is free. The Metro Silver Line Tysons Corner Station is less than a 3-block walk.
