On the grounds that the president was not specifically given the power to purchase new lands is why the strict constructionists of the US Constitution would have questioned the purchase of the Louisiana Territory. The purchase doubled the US land size at the time.

The land in the Louisiana Purchase was divided in 1804 into a southern part, the Territory of Orleans, and a huge northern part, the District of Louisiana, later called Louisiana Territory. The Territory of Orleans became the State of Louisiana in 1812. In order to avoid confusion with the State of Louisiana, the Louisiana Territory was renamed at that time as Missouri Territory. The first state whose land had been part of Louisiana Territory was Missouri, which became a state in 1821. There are links to maps below, which show these areas.
