When James Monroe had been sent to the French, he was sent to buy the New Orleans Port. Instead Napoleon made a deal offering the Louisiana Territory for 15 million.
..Why not just buy the Louisiana Territory that we own? For only 15 million!
..Er, okay! I'll take the deal.
I shall send you both to go on an expedition to explore the land we bought!
We will gladly accept the challenge of the expedition!
After the news of James Monroe accepting a different deal of different land, Thomas Jefferson decided to send a team of people on an expedition to explore it.
While going on their journey, they met many American Indian tribes and meanwhile met a woman named Sacagawea. She provided the team help and led them down paths. She was one of the reasons that the expedition was so successful.
