Verification needed[edit]

I'm finding more items in these dates articles that are not consistent with other Wikipedia entries. For example, where does this "fact" come from: 1803 – Lewis and Clark start their expedition to the west by leaving Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at 11 in the morning. I could not find this reference in the Corps of Discovery or Lewis and Clark articles. And it sounds a little too cute. The expedition formally started at the Mississippi, according to numerous sources. Pittsburgh, and 11 a.m., seem like a joke. (talk) 18:12, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
