Jefferson’s cipher for Meriwether Lewis
Jefferson’s cipher for Meriwether Lewis was never used on the expedition. It was created to be used if Lewis was in a situation where secrecy was of the utmost importance. It was written down in 1803. It came from the Vigenere cipher that was popular in Europe.
It is relatively complex seeming at first but once you understand it is really quite simple. It requires a keyword and an twenty-eight-column alphanumeric table. When it was used by Jefferson and Lewis the code word was artichokes.
Monticello’s website has a fantastic page (also where I got these lovely pictures of the document from) on how it works and more of the history of it. If you are looking for a transcript of the actual document Letters of the Lewis and Clark Expedition by Donald Jackson (which is on google books) has it.
