Uncharted Territory
In 1803 President Thomas Jefferson bought the Louisiana territory from the French for $15,000,000. The purchase made President Jefferson's dream of extending the U.S. west of the Mississippi River come true.
Now the much larger United States had difficult questions to answer: How would Louisiana be governed? How would it be divided into states? Would those states be free states or slave states? What would happen to the Native Americans? It would take over one hundred years, a war over slavery, and the creation of thirteen new states before these questions could be answered.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5–This book begins with biographical sketches of the important people who shaped events prior to, during, and immediately after the Louisiana Purchase, such as Robert Livingston, James Monroe, Thomas Jefferson, Napoléon Bonaparte, and Charles Leclerc. Concisely written, the large-print text includes information on the early exploration of the area, the French and Indian War, and the American Revolution. The authors also extend the topic to include the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the settling of the West and how these settlements affected the Native Americans, and the Missouri Compromise. The Roops dramatize and invent dialogue in the opening chapter, describing a bath scene in which Napoléon decides to sell Louisiana. The black-and-white illustrations and map of the United States in the early 1800s may help students visualize some of the events. Elizabeth D. Jaffe's The Louisiana Purchase (Capstone, 2002) covers the same material for the same age group and includes a glossary, time line, index, Internet sites, bibliography, reproductions of illustrations in color, photos of the cover and first page of the actual treaty, and copies of engravings.– Ann Joslin, formerly at Erie County Public Library, PA
