Louisiana Purchase and Lewis and Clark
Louisiana PurchaseFollowing America's War of Independence the United States expanded beyond its borders. Through diplomacy, negotiations and war she rapidly moved to the Pacific Coast, the Gulf of Mexico, the Rio Grande, the Canadian Border and Alaska. Following his election Thomas Jefferson was given the opportunity of a lifetime by France, the possibility to buy a vast amount of land from the Mississippi to the Pacific. Once the purchase was finalized he sent a group of explorers led by Lewis and Clark to explore and map the region. With the help of the Native American Sacajawea they accomplished the mission.
