After the revolution america was an independent country, but the Americans had no government so the Americans wrote the Constitution which dictated the laws that formed America into a nation.


In 1803 the colonists wanted New Orleans because they can use the Mississippi River for shipping but France owned it so they had to buy it from them. Their original offer was 10 million dollars for New Orleans but France threw in the Louisiana Territory because they needed money for the war they were having.

In 1805 we did not know what was in the Louisiana Territory so we sent Lewis and Clark to explore the Louisiana Territory and make maps of their surroundings.

After the Lewis and Clark expedition people started moving in and then we discovered British were there and they were attacking us by land and by sea which led to the War of 1812 which ended with the Treaty of Ghent.

The End
