Originally owned by France
Thomas Jefferson, President, wanted to take control of the port of New Orleans
Location ideal for farmers transporting goods
First offer of $2 million was rejected
Second offer of $10 million was accepted and for another $5 million, the French threw in the rest of the territory.
This calculates out to pennies an acre in today's currency
Originally owned by Spain
During the Latin American Wars of Independence, Florida became a burden to Spain because they could not afford to send settlers to the land.
Madrid agreed to cede the land to the U.S. in exchange for $5 million and the relinquishing of the U.S. Claims on parts of Spanish Texas and other areas under the terms of the Louisiana Purchase
Newly claimed independency from Mexico
After years of trying to negotiate, President John Tyler reopened the settlement with the Republic of Texas
During his first attempt he lacked the votes in the senate to ratify his treaty.
Before he left office, he attempted again.
With the support of President James Polk, Tyler managed to get the joint resolution passed on March 1, 1845
Texas was admitted into the U.S. on December 29
Originally Spain, Great Britain, Russia, and the U.S. claimed the territory.
Eventually the dispute came down to the U.S. and Great Britain
The increase in immigration by the Oregon Trail raised negotiations to take place
President James Polk proposed a settlement on the 49 degree line.
Great Britain agreed with some minor modifications, which reserved Vancouver and the Island to Canada.
Following the annexation of Texas, boarders disputes broke out between the U.S. and Mexico, eventually leading to war.
After over a year of fighting, the war ended in September 1847.
In February 1848, the two countries signed a treaty which recognized Texas as a U.S. state and ceded a large amount of land for $15 million.
