Storyboard Text

  • We need more resources and money to fight England! If that means selling land in the Americas, then so be it!
  • Jefferson
  • Gaining access to the Mississippi River will greatly aid American trade
  • Monroe
  • We would like to purchase New Orleans and we are willing to pay $10 million
  • Talleyrand
  • Actually, France is willing to sell the entire Louisiana Territory for $15 Million
  • Deal! That's 4 cents per acre!
  • There is no article in the Constitution that allows the president to make this purchase, but this is too large a bargain to dismiss. I must use the federalist idea of implied powers!
