Storyboard Text

  • You may not transport goods through New Orleans!
  • Welcome to... Hati
  • The white is the area that we bought
  • Americans wanted to move west to find adventure, but in 1802, the Spanish said that you can’t transport goods to move to or through New Orleans
  • In fact, it doubled the size of the US!
  • Toussaint L’Ouverture led enslaved African Americans and other laborers in Santo Domingo in a revolt against plantation owners. The revolt won and declared the colony an independent republic. Napoleon tried to get Santo Domingo back, but was unsuccessful, so the French were driven out and the republic took its original name, Hati.
  • Napoleon needed money, and without Santo Domingo, Louisiana was useless, so he sold the Louisiana Territory. Jefferson was worried that the purchase would be unconstitutional, but there was no time to make an amendment, so he bought it in October 1803 for $15 million.
  • One result of the Louisiana Purchase is that we acquired a lot of land
  • Another result of the Louisiana Purchase is that we found Great Plains, the Rocky Mountains, Rio Grande, northern Mexico and what is now southern Texas after an expedition that Zebulon Pike went to explore and climbed a mountain now known as Pike's Peak.
  • Another result of the Purchase was that New England, Massachusetts, and New York were worried about their say in political matters, so they planned to secede, or withdraw from the union, but when Alexander Hamilton heard these rumors, he challenged The leader to an illegal duel, in which Hamilton died and the leader, Aaron Burr, fled the country to avoid arrest.
