The biggest effect the Louisiana Purchase had on the United States was the change in the size of the country. The Louisiana Territory more than doubled the size of the country. In addition, the Louisiana Purchase forced Spain and France out of the land now defined as the United States, confining their North American territories to Mexico and Canada, respectively.

Initially the Louisiana Purchase had no affect on Native Americans. It should be noted that the Purchase covered a huge region. In 1803 the United States was busy with its main territories east of the Mississippi. Later, however, this new US territory would become an area that would attract new American settlers. Ultimately, this led to conflicts between Native Americans who owned the land and the new American settlers. They became violent conflicts which led to disaster for many Native Americans. They were killed and /or eventually forced to live on "Reservations".
