What was known as Louisiana Territory stretched from the Mississippi River in the east to the Rocky Mountains in the west and from the Gulf of Mexico in the South to the Canadian boarder in the North.
Part or all of 15 states were eventually created from the land deal, which was considered one of the most important achievements of Thomas Jefferson's presidency.
