  • The Spanish suddenly changed their policy no longer letting the pioneers ship goods into New Orleans or beyond.
  • Jefferson learned that Spain and France had secretly agreed to transfer Louisiana Territory to France. He believed that France had also gained Florida in its secret agreement with Spain. This alarmed him. This was a threat to the U.S.
  • L’Ouvert led enslaved Africans and other laborers into Santo Domingo in a revolt against the island’s plantation owners after fierce fighting the rebels won and declared the colony an independent republic-established a new government.
  • The troops came back unsuccessful without regaining Santo Domingo. Without Santo Domingo Louisiana was practically useless so the U.S. decided to pay 12 million dollars to buy it from L'Ouvert.
