In 1754 England was mad because France had a fort on their land. So when France wouldn't move their fort England got furious, and sent George Washington with some men to attack them. England lost because they had low ground. So they declared war against each other. The war went on for year, The French lost this war, and they made a treaty that gave England more land than they already had.
In 1803 the Louisiana Purchase was owned by France, and we wanted to buy New Orleans for 10 million dollars. They said no, but you can have Louisiana with New Orleans for 15 million. That was just 5 million more, but little did we know that we just ripped them off hard. If you look at this picture you'll see what I mean.
5 million for that much land wow what a rip off.
