Louisiana Purchaseby Peter Roop
Synopses & Reviews
andlt;Bandgt;Uncharted Territoryandlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; In 1803 President Thomas Jefferson bought the Louisiana territory from the French for $15,000,000. The purchase made President Jefferson's dream of extending the U.S. west of the Mississippi River come true. andlt;BRandgt; Now the much larger United States had difficult questions to answer: How would Louisiana be governed? How would it be divided into states? Would those states be free states or slave states? What would happen to the Native Americans? It would take over one hundred years, a war over slavery, and the creation of thirteen new states before these questions could be answered.
Two award-winning authors bring history to life for young readers as they examine the 1803 Louisiana Purchase, made by President Jefferson to make his dream of extending the United States west of the Mississippi River come true. Illustrations.
