9780300194616: The Nation's Crucible: The Louisiana Purchase and the Creation of America (Western Americana)

In 1803 the United States purchased Louisiana from France. This seemingly simple acquisition brought with it an enormous new territory as well as the country’s first large population of nonnaturalized Americans—Native Americans, African Americans, and Francophone residents. What would become of those people dominated national affairs in the years that followed. This book chronicles that contentious period from 1803 to 1821, years during which people proposed numerous visions of the future for Louisiana and the United States.

The Louisiana Purchase proved to be the crucible of American nationhood, Peter Kastor argues. The incorporation of Louisiana was among the most important tasks for a generation of federal policymakers. It also transformed the way people defined what it meant to be an American.

Book Description:

The purchase of Louisiana in 1803 brought vast land holdings and a large new population of nonnaturalized Americans into the United States. This book chronicles the process by which the federal government learned to administer a distant territory and to incorporate heterogeneous peoples into the American nation—and, in the process, came to refine the meaning of American citizenship.

From the Back Cover:

"By explicating the human consequences of the Louisiana Purchase, Peter J. Kastor's The Louisiana Purchase and the Creation of America adds a fresh and vital chapter to our understanding of the American experiment."-Jon Kukla, author of A Wilderness So Immense: The Louisiana Purchase and the Destiny of America
