Can I buy the whole area of the Louisiana purchase? PLEASE!!
Yes sir, for $15,000,000
We have declared independence from the Republic of Mexico.
We have achieved our manifest destiny, Mr. President.
Ok, thank you.
The Louisiana Purchase was a land deal between the United States and France, that was approximately 827,000 square miles of land west of the Mississippi River for $15 million.
1848 Mexican Cession
Texas retained all of its public lands and the United States paying $5 million to ease its debts. The annexation led quickly to war with Mexico in 1846.
The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed. As a result, this treaty established our Mexican-United States border at Texas at the Rio Grande River. We also got California, Utah, and Nevada from Mexico.
