He thought he found gold and gems but it was actually quartz crystals. Because of this he returned to France. The king was not happy and he did not pay for another expedition. The effect of this exploration is when he explored the St Lawrence river he made it able for France to claim parts of Canada. When he met with the Native Americans they liked each other.
French officials noticed the fights going on between England and the Colonies and they planned how the situation could play out for their own advantage. The French decided that on the plan of helping the American’s in several ways. First, they bought things from the americans like wheat, tobacco, salted fish, and indigo. This gave the Americans money so that they could by gun supplies. Another example, of their help is how they offered safe harbors in the Caribbean and the French Coast.
The Lewis and Clark Expedition, also known as the Corps of Discovery Expedition, was the first American expedition to cross what is now the western portion of the United States. It began near St. Louis, made its way westward, and passed through the continental divide to reach the Pacific coast. President Thomas Jefferson commissioned the expedition shortly after the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. It comprised a selected group of U.S. Army volunteers under the command of Captain Meriwether Lewis and his close friend, Second Lieutenant William Clark. Their perilous journey lasted from May 1804 to September 1806.
To many people it is a strong belief the Lewis and Clark expedition was a threat against the american indians and wildlife and caused the start of their removal, but I believe that what happened to the american indians had to happen in order to expand our country. The Lewis and Clark expedition explored the Louisiana purchase bought from the French in 1803 after the French failed their dream of a new empire. Current president Thomas Jefferson was asked by the French to buy a considerable amount of land for a very cheap price when the french had entered a rough patch of financial issues. The land was bought by Thomas Jefferson who had no idea what or really even who was living there besides the american indians. Thomas Jefferson decided to send explorers
Now was the time for America’s third president to take action and get back what belonged to his nation. Jefferson would begin his attempt to continue trade access along the Mississippi by sending diplomats to bargain with France. He looked to France as a friend to America but due to a potential crisis from Napoleon, Thomas would empower James Monroe in 1803 for assistance. Monroe had a negotiation amount up to 10 million from Jefferson to go with Livingston to buy the land east of the Mississippi.
James tuned in and shouted from the background, "France!" Thomas chuckled, but then continued, "Fast forward to the French Revolution. France is now asking for our help that we had promised at the end of the war. They are appalled to find out that we, as a country, will be staying neutral in this whole predicament. In conclusion, the French provided many things for our great country, so I personally think we should have paid them back for their efforts."
Alexis De Tocqueville was a french writer and an early observer of the American political culture during 1830 's. He came to America to answer the question, “Why are the Americans doing so well with democracy, while France is having so much trouble with it?” He identified a couple of factors that influenced America 's success like abundant and fertile land, countless opportunities for people to aquire land and make a
The ruler of France in 1180 was Phillip II; when he gained control, the Ile-de-France was sandwiched between the territory that was controlled by Flanders, Champagne, and Anjou. Phillip played the three rulers against each other. Some other rulers were astounded by how quickly Phillip gained territory. Phillip had significant support and resources to keep a good hold on Normandy. Before Phillip was in control of France, the arrangements were based on memory, not on writing.
Later, he helped Jefferson with the Louisiana Purchase. Jefferson appointed Monroe to minister of Great Britain. Sadly, the two men had a disagreement about a treaty. Monroe had a fallout with Jefferson and Madison. Still upset about the rough treatment, Monroe ran against Madison for President in 1808.
The second aim was that they wanted to change the monarchy into a republic or a democracy. Unfortunately they were not able to create a monarchy, but it ended with the dictatorship of Napoleon Bonaparte. The Glencoe World History textbook states, “ …The National Convention’s first major step on September 21 was to abolish the monarchy and establish a republic…” This shows how they were going on the right track and that this aim was about to be a success and if this aim would have succeeded then this revolution could have been one of the most successful revolutions, but unfortunately the dictator Napoleon comes in and takes control. History.com states, “After seizing political power in France in a 1799 coup d’état, Napoleon crowned himself emperor in 1804.”
His leadership during the war was one of no compromise but at the same time understanding that he would eventually have to unite the states once the North won the war. His actions eventually led to the abolition of slavery across the United States.Thsi shows how the actions of early presidents have a positive outcome in the growth of the U.S and its people because today the abolition of slavery has a major impact in the lives of the U.S and its citizens. There is equality and diversity. This can be seen when you look at our 44th president Barack Obama( currently in office in his last term). Therefore, the actions of the early presidents have a positive outcome on the growth of the U.S and its
Although Lewis and Clark did not accomplish their goal, they made their journey a success. First, Thomas Jefferson bought some massive land called,” The Louisiana Purchase” in 1803. He needed someone to study the vast land, and also see if there was a way to the Pacific Ocean. The president of 1803, Thomas Jefferson, sent Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, along with soldiers and various supplies. As Lewis in as the leader, and Clark in second commander, Jefferson created a group as of today, called the Corps of Discovery.
21. Louisiana Purchase- The purchase had happened when President Thomas Jefferson had bought the land from Napoleon Bonaparte of France, as Napoleon needed money to fund the war with France against Britain. As soon as Jefferson had purchased the land area it had made the U.S. twice its size. Jefferson had also sent Lewis and Clark to go and review the land and bring back information on the purchased area. As Lewis and Clark journeyed through the land they had met Shoshone woman
I 'm not so familiar with Pike, but I can tell you all you want to know about Lewis and Clark. When Napoleon needed money, he sold Jefferson the Louisiana Purchase, which he had acquired when he conquered Spain (the Spanish were not amused). To find out what he 'd just purchased, Jefferson sent Merriweather Lewis and William Clark (the brother of George Rogers Clark) to explore it. It covered an area from Louisiana northward to Missouri and across the biggest part of the Great Plains and Northwest. The team which went with them included such diverse people as Sacajawea, a Shosone Indian and her baby (nicknamed "Pompey" by Lewis), Lewis 's slave, French trappers, woodsmen, and other interpreters.
In addition, this request caused the Americans to enter into an unofficial war with France known as the Quasi War. In this war, the Americans laid an embargo on all trade and allowed naval vessels to attack armed French ships that were capturing American vessels. This sudden need for ships caused many people to see the importance in the Federalist cause of having a strong central government with the power of raising an army (McCullough 241). Furthermore, this war jumpstarted the plans for building a navy, as congress authorized $1.4 million for the building of naval warships to protect the Americans (Wood 245). After roughly 2 years of fighting, both sides signed a treaty, the Treaty of Mortefontaine, ending the war and the Franco-American alliance.
