I was sent to France to negotiate with Napolean about selling land to the west and in return to give him money to conquer.
I want to conquer all of Europe!
Exploration of the west
Meriweather Lewis and William Clark
We were sent to discover a way of passage from the Mississippi to the Pacific ocean.
I mapped much of upper Mississippi.
New England Federalists
We are unhappy that our party no longer has power so we want to take New England out of the union.
Jefferson despised the British, to the point he made a deal with France, the Louisiana Purchase. The purchase cost around 15 million but doubled the size of the US by two. Jefferson later asked for explorers to map and discover the region he purchased from France.
Hamilton vs. Burr
I refuse to fight you.
Jefferson secretly asked Congress to fund the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Along the way, they met Sacagawea and she helped them map much of the Louisiana Purchase. In 1805, The Pike Expedition mapped much of the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains.
The Louisiana purchase frightened the New England Federalists, it meant their region would lose political power to the west and the south. A small amount of Federalists decided to write a draft that depicts New England as a separate region, called the Essex Junto.
The New England Federalists asked upon active Vice President Aaron Burr to run for New York governor. Hamilton offended Burr and so Burr challenged Hamilton to a duel. Hamilton refused to fight and got shot, Burr was accused of treason but found not guilty, besides the homicide he committed.
