Storyboard Text

  • Thomas Jefferson buying the Louisiana territory
  • Louisiana territory
  • 15 New States Were Formed
  • There is now 15 new U.S. states!
  • YAY
  • There was Indians on that land
  • Hey, this is my land.
  • With the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the United States purchased approximately 828,000,000 square miles of territory from France, thereby doubling the size of the young republic. What was known as Louisiana Territory stretched from the Mississippi River in the east to the Rocky Mountains in the west and from the Gulf of Mexico in the south to the Canadian border in the north.
  • France gets paid lots of money
  • $15,000,000
  • Part or all of 15 states were eventually created from the land deal, which is considered one of the most important achievements of Thomas Jefferson’s presidency.
  • The agreement
  • Thomas Jefferson
  • Napoleon I of France
  • On the contrary, in the comparatively small territory south of the Le nape and Iroquois tribes, and including that portion of the state of Louisiana which lies west of the Mississippi, we find allowing even the Muskogee and Choctaw to be but one, three extensive languages, the Catawba, the Cherokee, and more.
  • It makes the USA what it is today
  • Representatives in Paris agreed to pay $15 million for about 828,000 square miles of land that stretched from the Mississippi River to the Rocky Mountains and from the Gulf of Mexico to Canada.
  • The treaty was dated April 30 and signed on May 2. In October, the U.S. Senate ratified the purchase, and in December 1803 France transferred authority over the region to the United States.
  • Without this land our country would be different from today's USA.
