In 1762 ceded what came to be called the Louisiana Territory to Spain in return for their help during the French and Indian wars. In 1800 my sources tell me that Spain gave or sold the territory back to France. In turn France sold it to the U.S. in 1803. I do not know how or why the transfer in 1800 was done. In writing a small history project, I would like to find how that transfer was made, and why. Any help? Dolores Dambach
