The expedition of Lewis and Clark did indeed go beyond the Louisiana Purchase. It went all the way to the Pacific Ocean and included what is now Idaho, Washington and Oregon which were not not part of the purchase.

How did The Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clark expedition and how will change lives?

The Lewis and Clark expedition, 1803–1806, was a U.S. expedition that explored the territory of the Louisiana Purchase and the country beyond as far as the Pacific Ocean.Thomas Jefferson had long considered the project of a western expedition, and as president he contemplated the matter in earnest and discussed it with his private secretary, Capt. Meriwether Lewis. When Congress approved the plan in 1803 and appropriated money for it, Jefferson named Lewis to head it, and Lewis selected William Clark as his associate in command. The purpose was to search out a land route to the Pacific, to strengthen American claims to Oregon territory, and to gather information about the indigenous inhabitants and the country of the Far West. Before the long march was begun, the Louisiana Purchase was made, increasing the need for a survey of the West.GUYS I HOPE U LIKE THIS AND I HOPE IT HELP YOU *_______________*

Was Jefferson's position favoring the Louisiana Purchase an example of strict construction of the Constitution?

Absolutely not. The constitution contained no provision for expansion of the country and the Louisiana Purchase has always been historically seen as a case where Jefferson overstepped his powers as President. Jefferson himself was conscious of this and even considered seeking a constitutional amendment to grant hims the authority for the purchase, but he had to abandon it when it became clear that an amendment couldn't be ratified before Napoleon changed his mind about selling Louisiana. So the Louisiana Purchase is an example of an act which goes far beyond anything that could be considered "strict construction."

As a result of the treaty of Paris in 1783 the US gained independence and acquired additional land beyond the 13 former colonies?

Why was the purchase of the Louisiana Purchase so important?

Before President Jefferson made the Louisiana Purchase, it belonged to France. It consisted of land that now makes up all of Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and South Dakota as well as parts of what is now Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, and Minnesota. When the US bought the Louisiana Purchase, it greatly increased the expansion of the United States. As American settlers moved to the Louisiana Purchase, they came closer to Mexico. Mexico allowed Americans to freely settle in Texas, but soon afterward these Americans in Mexico became disgruntled and rebelled. Also, a dispute about the border between Mexico and the United States started the Mexican-American War (note that America and Mexico shared no borders before the Louisiana Purchase). As a result of the war, America gained land all the way to what is now California, including nearly all of the American Southwest. In a nutshell, the Louisiana Purchase set up a series of events that fueled American expansion to the Pacific and beyond, and without it the United States would only be up to the eastern edge of the Missouri River.
