I want the Florida Territory
Ok Mr. President we will ask the Spanish for it.
Would you sell Florida to us?
Okay, go to Florida to try and convince them.
They won't sell it.
The United States wanted to own Florida but it was already owned by the Spanish so they went to ask them for it.
The Spanish refused to give the Florida territory to the United States.
Jackson was asked to go to Florida and try and convince them to sell the territory to the U.S.
We are willing to give America Western Florida.
Jackson took his men and raided western Florida. They arrested and killed many Spanish people living there.
When Jackson and his men returned, everyone was mad at them because they thought their actions were unnecessary and that they should be punished.
The raid made the Spanish realize how strong the U.S. government was so when the U.S. asked again the sold it to them for 5 million dollars and the Texas territory.
Over 12 Million
