S&B murders Lewis

"They found him wounded and bloody, with part of his skull gone, but he lived for several hours. Priscilla Grinder's testimony is held as a point of contention from both sides of the murder-suicide debate. The murder advocates point to five conflicting testimonies as evidence that hers is fabricated, and the suicide advocates point to her testimony as proof of suicide.[20] The only doctor to examine Lewis' body did so in 1848. He reported that Lewis appeared to have died "by the hand of an assassin". Lewis' descendants have retained the report.[citation needed] When Clark and Jefferson were informed of Lewis' death, both accepted the conclusion of suicide. His mother and relatives contended it was murder. In later years, a court of inquiry explored whether they could charge the husband of the tavern-keeper with Lewis' death. They dropped the inquiry for lack of evidence or motive."

Make sure you add notes to nodes. Each relationship can be explained in a simple bullet point. Forge relationships between events Always add a good link, if you know of a better link change it. Stay on top of formatting, use large text for large events. Remeber we are trying to connect events together so people have a good understanding, organisation is critical

Hover over for howto

If there's a little document sign, there's a note for you to read. If there's a little arrow sign, there's a link for you to click. When the map is finished, you will be able to extend out two topics, such as "Skull and Bones" and "Banking", or "War on Terror" and "Civil Liberties" and you can see all the connections between the two. If you have something to add, make sure you register and begin to connect the topics together. We need more contributers, don't be afraid to edit other people's work. The point is we need to make connections between events in the real world.
