1. Kentucky Ties to the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The first detailed printed account of the expedition's successful return was printed in the Frankfort newspaper The Palladium on October 9, 1806. The first news of its return - literally a news extra - was printed on October 2 in The Palladium. These two accounts were picked up and circulated by other papers, announcing to the nation Lewis and Clark's successful return.
