Dear. Editor I think that the United States, Thomas Jefferson and congress should buy the Louisiana territory because it would double the u.s in size and give us more opportunities like getting goods shipped to us from different countries. I have a few reasons why this would be a good idea one is that if they buy it, it will give us the whole territory, the New Orleans port and the Mississippi River and that is good because we will be able to get many different goods sent to us and that can help us a lot. It is a good idea because the land only coast 4 cents per Acre and it only coast $15 million for all of it and it comes with the Mississippi river and we . Wont have to worry about Napoleon closeting the port down for people
He never sold this gold. This caused prices to rise and stocks to plummet.  After Grant realized what had happened, the federal government sold $4 million in gold. On September 20, 1869, Gould and Fisk started hoarding gold, driving the price higher. On September 24 the premium on a gold Double Eagle (representing 0.9675 troy ounces (30.09 g) of gold bullion at $20) was 30 percent higher than when Grant took office.
Jefferson decided to try and buy New Orleans. Why did he want to buy it? He wanted to be sure that American farmers would always be able to ship their goods through the port. Jefferson sent Robert Livingston and James Monroe to buy New Orleans and to buy West Florida from Napoleon. The president said they could offer as much as $10 million.
When he made the Louisiana Purchase in 1803 he purchased more than 800.000 square miles of Louisiana territory. We bought it from France for about $15 million dollars. By buying this territory doubled the size of the United States. Because he just bought some of the Louisiana territory greatly expanded the United States. Jefferson wanted to explore both the new part of the country and the rest of the continent.
In 1803 the Louisiana Purchase had a humongous effect on the United States at this point in history. This investment caused the U.S. to double in size overnight. Our borders had become at least twice the size they were before the acquisition. At first Jefferson was planning to acquire New Orleans, he wanted the farmers to be able to sell their wares in other countries. Fortunately for him Napoleon at the time needed money to found his wars with other countries.
Sectional Tensions Gadsden Purchase: The Gadsden Purchase was a treaty made in 1853 by James Gadsden of South Carolina. Gadsden was appointed by Secretary of War Jefferson Davis to secure a chunk of Mexico for a railway route. He was able to negotiate land along the southern tips of current day Arizona and New Mexico, the northern border of Mexico, for $10 million from Spaniard Santa Anna. The land Gadsden had managed to obtain would have made making a southern railroad much more simple than cutting through more northern mountains. The Gadsden Purchase lead to criticism by Northerners who were skeptical of paying large amounts for a dessert similar to the size of South Carolina.
He went back to Puerto Rico and died there. The Spanish gained a large amount of gold from the Americas. One shipment alone was about $15 million, and they would send a shipment a week back to Spain. Eventually England and France would take over more places in the New World, because they chose to focus more on establishing a trade in goods with the Indians instead of searching for more gold and
The Louisiana Purchase territory has had the biggest impact on the United States because of profits, the Mississippi river, and the disadvantages. The land included in the purchase stretched from the Mississippi River to the Rocky Mountains. To most Americans, the Louisiana Purchase looked like the greatest land deal in history because it was nation’s first opportunity for expansion. Louisiana Purchase doubled the size at a bargain price for just 2 to 3 cents an acre. On April 30, 1803, Napoleon signed a treaty giving Louisiana to the United States in exchange for $15 million.
Her and her husband take out thousands of dollars to replace the necklace. But there is one thing that they do not know about the necklace until it is too late. ‘“It was worth at the very most five hundred francs”’(8)! Madame tell Mathilde the worst thing that she could ever here. That Mathilde and her husband, spent thousands of francs to replace a necklace that is only five hundred francs.
5. One early and subsequent motive that drove Columbus to oppress indigenous peoples was money and land. Columbus got Spain to finance an expedition to the lands, the wealth; he expected would be in the Indies and Asia (gold and spices). In exchange for gold and spices, Spain “promised Columbus 10 percent of the profits, governorship over new-found lands, and the fame that would go with a new title: Admiral of the Ocean Sea.” Columbus wanted this fame and money and he forced these indigenous people of these new lands to serve him and bring all the gold to him, and if they did there would be great consequences. “They had no iron, but they wore tiny gold ornaments in their ears.
But when Mexico gained independence in 1821, the U.S had already more than doubled its land by buying the “Louisiana Purchase” from France for 15 million dollars in 1803 This majorly increased the popularity of Manifest Destiny because settlers wanted to move to the new land to find gold or start new settlements. This started the many conflicts between Mexico and the U.S because now for the first time the U.S and Mexico shared borders. Mexico needed to protect its borders from the U.S and they had a plan. First Mexico needed to populate the area, then Mexico allowed some Americans to settle Texas, but the
Also, as the settlers expanded westward, they wanted to create a new means of transportation – a railroad. In the 1850s, the United States paid Mexico 10 million dollars for a strip of land that the railroad could run through. This was a large amount of money compared to how much they paid for Louisiana. The Mexican government accepted the proposal and they ceded their lands. The purchase was the last territorial acquisition America added to the large area of the country.
