No. The United States purchased the Louisiana Territory from France. Spain once owned Louisiana as a result of the Treaty of Paris in 1763. But, the French got it back with a …secret treaty in 1800. Presient Jefferson used the Louisiana Purchase as a result, gaining much land.
Jefferson needed the New Orleans port for the people of the westernfrontier to transfer their products down the Mississippi River.Originally he offered to buy just New Orleans…, but Napoleon offeredall of the Louisiana Territory (in part to frustrate the designs ofthe British, who had taken Canada from France). The 1803 LouisianaPurchase nearly doubled the size of the US, and opened the way forwestward expansion.
Yes, the purchase of the Louisiana Territory was Constitutional because there is nothing stated in the Constitution about purchasing anything. This putting it in the implied p…owers (powers that are not stated in the constitution) spot. It was not constitutional, Thomas Jefferson bought it himself without the legislative or judicial branch even knowing about it. Thomas Jefferson was a strange man
Our 51st state, the great state of Thomas Jefferson.
$15 million was the purchase price. The US had to borrow the money from European bankers. (I do not think the sellers would accept US banknotes.)
In Thomas Jefferson
Jefferson purchased the Louisiana Territory from Napoleon Bonaparte after he purchased it from the Spanish.
