The Louisiana Purchase was one of the greatest land deals ever to take place. Louisiana was so big that it made our nation over 23% bigger, making America difficult to attack. It also gave the American colonies a place to legally expand to. Before we purchased it from France, Americans were illegall…y moving there anyway. To sum it all up, the Louisiana Purchase was a prerequisite to the growth and the sustaining of America. (MORE)
The Louisiana Purchase was the acquisition by theUnited States of America of 828,800 square miles (2,147,000km 2 ) of the French territory Louisiane in 1803. This was the entire valley of theMississippi as claimed by the French, an area as large as theexisting United States at the time. The pu…rchase was one of the greatest real estate deals that hasever existed in the United States (along with the purchase ofAlaska in 1867). President Thomas Jefferson offered 10 milliondollars for the port of New Orleans so that the US could haveaccess to the Mississippi River. Instead he received the entirearea known as the Louisiana Territory and the New Orleansport and only paid 15 million dollars for it. Which means he paidabout 3 cents per acre to buy the entireMississippi River valley from Napoleon Bonaparte. America wanted to buy New Orleans from France because the Mississippi was there only way of getting crops from the West to the market by shipping it out from the port in New Orleans. Louisiana was given to Spain after France lost the French and Indian War, but under Napoleon Bonaparte, Louisiana was given back to France. Napoleon was going to have people settle in the territory and farm crops for the slaves who worked in the sugar plantations in the West Indies. The president at the time, Jefferson, sent James Monroe to France to offer to buy New Orleans for $7 million. However, France had just lost its sugar plantations in what is modern day Haiti and had no more use for Louisiana. In addition, Britain and France were on the brink of war and France knew they could not hold on to Louisiana much longer, so they decided to sell all of Louisiana to the US for $15 million. Monroe accepted the deal and the Senate ratified the Louisiana Purchase Treaty later that year. This was the first step in Manifest Destiny as the US spread across the North American continent, and by buying Louisiana they had more than doubled the original size of the US. (MORE)

As rig counts drop, and oil and gas land and legal work related to the Barnett Shale slow in these tough economic times, some oil and gas professionals in North Texas may be looking to the Barnett Shale's younger sibling to the east, the Haynesville Shale. Though geologically speaking the Haynesvill…e Shale is much older than the Barnett, it is currently experiencing a growth period similar to that of North Texas these last few years, offering new opportunities for legal and land professionals. However, the Haynesville Shale differs from the Barnett in several important aspects. Unlike the Barnett, much of the area covered by the Haynesville Shale is rural, with the exception of the Shreveport/Bossier metropolitan area. The much deeper Haynesville Shale also covers areas in eastern Texas and northwestern Louisiana that have been open to oil and gas exploration and production going back to the foundations of the industry in those states, much of which still produces, such as the Cotton Valley formation. As opposed to the Barnett Shale, which lies between 6,000 and 7,000 feet below the surface, the Haynesville Shale lies approximately 12,000 feet below the surface and almost directly beneath the Cotton Valley formation. Although operators with land held by production in these areas are at a great advantage to newcomers in the area, great portions of the Haynesville Shale lie beneath Louisiana, and those accustomed to Texas law and the Barnett Shale should familiarize themselves with Louisiana law regarding oil and gas interests, much of which is codified in the Louisiana Mineral Code, Title 31 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes.
