What if the Louisiana purchase never happened?
Transcript of What if the Louisiana purchase never happened?
Without the Louisiana purchase the United States would be 50% smaller than before. Which means we would not have discovered as many plants an animals.
How would this affect the size of the U.S?
However, if Napoleon never sold us the Louisiana territory we would have gone to battle for it. This would have weakened our relationship with France and caused us to have tension between nations.
Our relationship with France.

Why this topic?
I chose this topic because I was curious of what would happen if we were 50% smaller without westward expansion.
-What could we have done with the $15 million instead of buying the territory?
-Would Lewis and Clark still be famous?
-Would Sacajawea still be relevant?
-Would France be the one to move the natives out?
-Would France really go to battle with us for this land?
What Was The Louisiana Purchase?
The Louisiana Purchase was a settlement between France and the U.S where Napoleon sold approximately 827,000 square miles of french land for $15 million dollars. That is less that 3 cents an acre. This settlement happened on April 30th,1803.
