The Louisianapurchase By Sylas Pelikan Leo Panzica Kim Rojas Elizabeth Chuei
The Story of The LouisianaPurchase The Louisiana Purchase was without doubt the cheapest piece of land, considering its area. Each acre was roughly about 4 cents per acre. Now thats cheap!France proposed that all of the Louisiana Purchase land costed $15,000,000.00. The U.S agreed to the great deal (it was like getting 40% deal off something worth a lot of money you cannot afford) and France needed the money to win two wars France was battling.
States forming the Louisiana PurchaseThe states that formed the Louisiana Purchase were Montana,South Dakota,Nebraska,Missouri,Iowa, Arkansas,Kansas,The eastern Part of Colorado,the western part of North Dakota,a small portion of Louisiana,the eastern part of Oklahoma,a small portion of Minnesota,and the eastern part of Wyoming.
Border AreasJust to explain how big the purchase was I will tell you about the borders. Some obvious ones are the Gulf of Mexico and CANADA. that`s right , Canada. That is one of the many things about this purchase. Also the Missisippi River and the Rocky Mountains are the side borders indicating the width. That is a huge amount of land.
