FACEBOOK on the Louisiana Purchase

On Saturday, April 30, 1803, the Louisiana Purchase Treaty was signed by Robert Livingston, James Monroe, and Barbé Marbois in Paris. President Jefferson announced the treaty to the American people on July 4. After the signing of the Louisiana Purchase agreement in 1803, Livingston made this famous statement, “We have lived long, but this is the noblest work of our whole lives…From this day the United States take their place among the powers of the first rank.”[

So … The Right thinks Jefferson Was A Constitutional Literalist?

  • Mitch Anderton A pipe dream
  • Stephen Schwartz Are y’all kidding? Jefferson BOUGHT most of today’s USA  from France, theLuoisian Purchase, WITHOUT approval of Congress!
