How are The Louisiana Purchase and the manifest destiny related?
They both caused problems :3
Which of these is most closely related to the Mexican-American War A Mason-Dixon Line B The Louisiana Purchase C Manifest Destiny D American Immigration policies?
Mexico had claimed Texas. The US wanted Texas, arguably because many Americans believed in Manifest Destiny-- we were 'entitled' to lands from ocean to ocean. If America had not already worked out eastern Canadian-US boundaries in the French and Indian War, and if the French had not strongly set up control over Canada, Americans probably would have pushed north, too, under Manifest Destiny. Once the US took over Texas, the US stopped pushing further south.
The single main concept of Manifest Destiny is the principle that the United States was clearly fated, even by God, to expand across the entire North American continent. The obvious problem with Manifest Destiny (which, it may be argued, continues to the present day as the United States seeks to export what we characterize as "democracy" around the world) is that there may be other people, cultures and ideas in the way.

The relation is a simple one. The Louisiana Purchase that US President Thomas Jefferson has bargained for with France was a great deal. The cost was about a few cents per acre. The amount of land purchased from France is immense. It includes areas around Louisisna all the way to the Pacific coast. The deal was made in 1803. Naturally this new land will/was new fertile ground to be explored and perhaps settled. Thus the…
Why, Louisiana is notorious for purchasing the top 40 recording artists from the 1960s to 1980s, especially the Rock 'n Roll Artists who were later inducted into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame. Lady Ga Ga oversaw the ceremony for the purchase, and she ended up purchased as well ! It was a historical event for rock and roll, which had only limited popularity in Louisiana prior to this purchase. During part of the…
What is one reason that the United Sttes fought the War of 1812Why did Americans and Mexicans in Texas fight against Mexico?
A collectible expert would have to appraise it based on condition. Specimens of the "medals" produced for the St. Louis "Louisiana Purchase Exposition" can be seen at the related link. A small (26 mm) token was valued at USD$ 6.75 in July, 2009. Another medallion (33 mm) of gold-plated bronze was advertised for USD$ 25.00 during the same period. A larger unbordered bronze medal (50 mm) was priced at USD$ 250.
