In 1904, The Louisiana Purchase Exposition commemorated the completion of the sale of land by Napoleon Bonaparte to President Thomas Jefferson in 1804. Lewis and Clark would set off that year on their famous expedition to explore the new acquisition. More commonly referred to as The St. Louis World’s Fair, held in St. Louis, Missouri, the fair was notable for many innovations including popularizing the ice cream cone. There are many remnants of the Fair which can be seen in St. Louis today.

To aid the many visitors who may become lost in the expansive fair and surrounding area, a St. Louis citizen may have worn this button as a prompt to answer questions.
