1762 - In the aftermath of the French and Indian War, France loses the Louisiana Territory to Spain. When Spain returns the land to France in an 1801 treaty, Americans worry about what the aggressive Napoleon Bonaparte might do with it. In response, President Thomas Jefferson orders U.S. Minister Robert Livingston to negotiate the purchase of the strategic port of New Orleans from the French. When France offers to sell the entire Louisiana Territory instead, Jefferson moves swiftly to close the deal. On May 2, 1803, the United States signs a treaty with France, acquiring the Louisiana Territory for 15 million dollars. The land deal doubles the size of the United States, adding 828 million square miles to its territory. At a cost of less than three cents per acre, the Louisiana Purchase becomes one of Thomas Jefferson’s most notable achievements as President of the United States.

In which John Green teaches you about founding father and third president of the United States, Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson is a somewhat controversial figure in American history, largely because he, like pretty much all humans, was a big bundle of contradictions. Jefferson was a slave-owner who couldn't decide if he liked slavery. He advocated for small government, but expanded federal power more than either of his presidential predecessor. He also idealized the independent farmer and demonized manufacturing, but put policies in place that would expand industrial production in the US. Controversy may ensue as we try to deviate a bit from the standard hagiography/slander story that usually told about old TJ. John explores Jefferson's election, his policies, and some of the new nation's (literally and figuratively) formative events that took place during Jefferson's presidency. In addition to all this, Napoleon drops in to sell Louisiana, John Marshall sets the course of the Supreme Court, and John Adams gets called a tiny tyrant.

France agreed to sell 828,000 square miles of territory that stretched from the Mississippi River to the Rocky Mountains, and which doubled the size of the United States. Although the land transfer went on to include a vast area that now forms part of fifteen separate states, America’s original interest was just in buying the port of New Orleans. New Orleans offered important access to both the Mississippi River and the Gulf of Mexico, so was vital to American trade and the provision of supplies to the new Western territories that were being settled at the time. When France regained control of the city from Spain in the early 1800s, it raised fears that access would be restricted. These fears were realized when, on October 18th 1802, Americans were banned from using warehouses in New Orleans. President Jefferson had already ordered diplomats to begin talks in Paris with the aim of buying the city from France. However, on 11th April 1803, the French negotiators offered to sell the entire Louisiana Territory to the Americans for $15 million. Facing an impending war with Britain, and having failed to suppress an uprising in present-day Haiti by slaves and free blacks, France simply couldn’t afford to send troops to occupy and control the Mississippi valley. Deciding to cut their losses, the French government therefore agreed to sell the entire territory at less than 3 cents per acre.

In 1803 the U.S. negotiated probably the best real estate deal in history, taking advantage of Napoleon's need for cash to fund his European expansion. Fredrik Stanton: The Louisiana Purchase not only was probably the best real estate deal in history, it was also one of the formative events in American History, and it really defined the country as we know it today. France owned the Louisiana Territories, which was a vast expanse of wilderness at that point along the banks of the Mississippi River and extending all the way to the Rockies and beyond. It was about 800,000 square miles of territory. The United States was very concerned because the Port of New Orleans, through which half of America's trade flowed out as a port of entry from the Mississippi had been cut off to the Americans. It sent America into its first major crisis since the Revolution. Napoleon sold it to the United States because he was worried that he might lose it anyway if a war broke out with the British, which imminent and eventually happened. The U.S. bought the Louisiana Territories for $15 million. And it forms the basis for the majority of our states today. Question: What lesson does this teach us about everyday negotiations? Fredrik Stanton: The United States was aware that France and Napoleon was about to go to war with England. He needed money for the war and he was worried that he would lose Louisiana anyway. So the American negotiator successfully used this to their advantage and one of the lessons we can draw from that is, if you understand what motivates the person on the other side of the table from you, whether in a real estate negotiation or a business negotiation, you will discover factors that don't involve you directly, but that push the other side under pressure to make a deal or provide leverage that you can use. For instance, if you're buying a house, you may discover that the other side is selling the house because the family has gotten a new job elsewhere and needs to move by a certain date. That gives you leverage in a negotiation because they're under pressure to sell. There maybe other factors that are involved, but if they have to sell, then that gives you additional leverage that you can use to lower the price, to improve the terms, to do any number of things.

The Louisiana Purchase is one of the most well-known land purchases in American history. It doubled the size of the United States and was obtained at an incredible bargain from Napoleon Bonaparte, who wanted to divest of France’s holdings in America in order to fund his battles in Europe. U.S. President Thomas Jefferson was only too eager to take advantage of this unique and unprecedented opportunity to increase the size and power of the United States. Today, I’ll explain why it was such a controversial.

Jefferson served as a delegate to the Second Continental Congress beginning in June 1775, soon after the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&tag=tra0c7-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=6f32a530e58f9a42591430340e05064a&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=books&keywords=hitchens%20jefferson He didn't know many people in the congress, but sought out John Adams who, along with his cousin Samuel, had emerged as a leader of the convention. Jefferson and Adams established a friendship that would last the rest of their lives; it led to the drafting of Jefferson to write the declaration of independence. When Congress began considering a resolution of independence in June 1776, Adams ensured that Jefferson was appointed to the five-man committee to write a declaration in support of the resolution. After discussing the general outline for the document, the committee decided that Jefferson would write the first draft. The committee in general, and Jefferson in particular, thought Adams should write the document. Adams persuaded the committee to choose Jefferson, who was reluctant to take the assignment, and promised to consult with the younger man. Over the next seventeen days, Jefferson had limited time for writing and finished the draft quickly. Consulting with other committee members, Jefferson also drew on his own proposed draft of the Virginia Constitution, George Mason's draft of the Virginia Declaration of Rights, and other sources. The other committee members made some changes. Most notably Jefferson had written, "We hold these truths to be sacred and un-deniable..." Franklin changed it to, "We hold these truths to be self-evident." A final draft was presented to the Congress on June 28, 1776. The title of the document was "A Declaration by the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress assembled." Jefferson viewed the Independence of the American people from the mother country Britain as breaking away from "parent stock", and that the War of Independence from Britain was a natural outcome of being separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Jefferson viewed English colonists were compelled to rely on "common sense" and rediscover the "laws of nature". According to Jefferson, the Independence of the original British colonies was in a historical succession following a similar pattern when the Saxons colonized Britain and left their mother country Europe hundreds of years earlier. After voting in favor of the resolution of independence on July 2, Congress turned its attention to the declaration. Over three days of debate, Congress made changes and deleted nearly a fourth of the text, most notably a passage critical of the slave trade. While Jefferson resented the changes, he did not speak publicly about the revisions. On July 4, 1776, the Congress ratified the Declaration of Independence and the delegates signed the document. The Declaration would eventually be considered one of Jefferson's major achievements; his preamble has been considered an enduring statement of human rights. All men are created equal has been called "one of the best-known sentences in the English language", containing "the most potent and consequential words in American history". The passage came to represent a moral standard to which the United States should strive. This view was notably promoted by Abraham Lincoln, who based his philosophy on it, and argued for the Declaration as a statement of principles through which the United States Constitution should be interpreted. In 1803, in the midst of the Napoleonic wars between France and Britain, Thomas Jefferson authorized the Louisiana Purchase, a major land acquisition from France that doubled the size of the United States. Most of France's wealth in the New World had come from its sugar plantations on Saint-Domingue and Guadeloupe in the Caribbean, but production had fallen after a slave uprising. After sending more than 20,000 troops to try to regain the colony in 1802, France withdrew its 7,000 surviving troops in late 1803, shortly before Haiti declared independence. Having lost the revenue potential of Haiti while escalating his wars against the rest of Europe, Napoleon gave up on an empire in North America and used the purchase money to help finance France's war campaign on its home front. Though France was removed as a threat to the United States, Jefferson refused to recognize the new republic of Haiti, the second in the Western Hemisphere, and imposed an arms and trade embargo against it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_jefferson

The Louisiana Purchase Treaty was signed on April 30 by Robert Livingston, James Monroe, and Barbé Marbois in Paris. 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." The United States Senate advised and consented to ratification of the treaty with a vote of twenty-four to seven on October 20. The Senators who voted against the treaty were: Simeon Olcott and William Plumer of New Hampshire, William Wells and Samuel White of Delaware, James Hillhouse and Uriah Tracy of Connecticut, and Timothy Pickering of Massachusetts. On the following day, October 21, 1803, the Senate authorized Jefferson to take possession of the territory and establish a temporary military government. In legislation enacted on October 31, Congress made temporary provisions for local civil government to continue as it had under French and Spanish rule and authorized the President to use military forces to maintain order. Plans were also set forth for several missions to explore and chart the territory, the most famous being the Lewis and Clark Expedition. A timeline of legislation can be found at the Library of Congress: American Memory:The Louisiana Purchase Legislative Timeline--1803-1804. The American government used $3 million in gold as a down payment, and issued bonds for the balance to pay France for the purchase. Earlier that year, Francis Baring and Company of London had become the U.S. government's official banking agent in London. Because of this favored position, the U.S. asked the Baring firm to handle the transaction. Francis Baring's son Alexander was in Paris at the time and helped in the negotiations. Another Baring advantage was a close relationship with Hope and Company of Amsterdam. The two banking houses worked together to facilitate and underwrite the Purchase. Because Napoleon wanted to receive his money as quickly as possible, the two firms received the American bonds and shipped the gold to France. Napoleon used the money to finance his planned invasion of England, which never took place. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louisiana_Purchase
