In 1492 Christoper Columbus explored the ocean. He was the only one that was brave enough to do it. Christopher thought he made it to Asia or some place like so , but he actually landed near the Bahamas and Spain. He basically started the United states of America a because he found the start.
This is a picture of a boat because it represents Columbus sailing the ocean
The Louisiana Purchase (1803) was a land deal between the United States and France, in which the U.S. acquired approximately 827,000 square miles of land west of the Mississippi River for $15 million!
The Americans accepted the deal and the Indianans were not too happy about it because that means the would have to leave and they didn't want to do that.
They where very upset and where mad!!!
This is the land the Americans bought for only an extra $5 million! This was important on how America started because it opened up rivers for the Americans to use and also they almost doubled their own country!!!
