Toussaint L'Ouverture led a slave revolt in Haiti against France, which owned Haiti at the time. They decided to go to war.
I need money to go to war. Should I sell my Lousiana land to the US to get the money? I think I will.
Napoleon Bonaparte needed money for to go to war against Haiti, but he was in still in debt from the war against Britain. He decided to sell the Louisiana Territory to the US president, Thomas Jefferson.
Is buying land constitutional or not?
Napoleon decided to sell LA territory to Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson didn't know if it was constitutional or not to buy land because no president had done that before. There was nothing in the Constitution that said he couldn't, so he decided to buy the Lousiana Territory for $15 million.
Jefferson had Meriwether Lewis and William Clark lead the expedition to explore the Western land that they had bought.
Would you two lead the expedition across the West?
Okay, thank you!
Lewis and Clark were on their expedition and when they met Sacagawea, she offered to help. At the time, Sacagawea was away from her tribe, but she led Lewis and Clark to it.
I can help you and lead you back to my tribe.
Thank you so much!
Sacagawea’s brother was very happy to see Sacagawea. He gave Lewis and Clark horses, led them through the Rockies and accompanied them throughout exploring the West.
We can help you explore and give you horses for your journey.
