The expedition had been requested by the US Congress and had a wide ranging scientific objectives. For example, measuring how gravity varied with distance from the earth's centre by taking instruments to the high altitudes in the mountainous Andes.
During their leisure hours, the expedition was encouraged to observe interesting plants and animals. The artists involved drew these and on their return lithographs were made to document discoveries. These make make great conversation pieces! Imagine being asked "where does that come from?". You may reply, "oh, from a US naval expedition that set off in the year of the Californian gold rush."
