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
they accomplished the mission.
