Few periods in world history conjure up the sense of enthusiasm and excitement of exploration than the nineteenth century. The Western world began a pursuit of scientific discovery seeking out exotic new locations in the search for answers. In the spirit of the times, the United States Eclipse Expedition traveled to Cape Ledo in order to observe the 1889 solar eclipse. Although the expedition was unable to see the eclipse, there was a remarkable degree of travel and exploration of Africa. Ultimately, the Eclipse Expedition was a sweeping adventure spanning various islands and parts of Africa.
