Which president purchased the Louisiana Territory during his term?

Thomas Jefferson proposed and completed the Louisiana Purchase from France and Napoleon in 1803. Robert Livingstone and James Monroe traveled to France to negotiate the purchase. The original intent was to purchase only enough land to guarantee access to the Mississippi and the port of New Orleans. Napoleon apparently needed money and offered the entire Louisiana Territory for $15 million or about 3 cents per acre. After the purchase was made, Jefferson assigned Lewis and Clark the job of exploring the territory. Congress had to approve the final purchase and arrange to borrow the $15 million purchase price. Thomas Jefferson was our 3rd President serving from March, 1801 to March, 1809.

Which US President was in office during the Alaska purchase?

Called Sewards Folly, the purchase of Alaska from Russia was also condemed as Johnson's Icebox after Andrew Johnson the US President at the time of aquisition. After the Louisana Purchase this US purchace was the finest Blue Light Special ever offered without war in the balance. This was not the spoils of war or the theft via power, or any act of chicanery. This was commerce and can be compared to buying the Hope Diamond for zilch at a Dollar Store.
