Napoleon

November 7, 2013 at 11:19 am 3 comments

 Napoleon influenced the New World by selling the big chunk of land called Louisiana to America.  He was interested in the New World because North America could provide the French West Indies with food.  He would have kept the land for awhile except that there was a war coming on with the British and Napoleon needed money badly.  So he decided to sell the whole Louisiana Territory to the Americans instead of just some of it.  Napoleon influenced mainly Louisiana and a few states around it.  Before Napoleon agreed to sell it to the U.S., Thomas Jefferson said to try to get part of the territory at a reasonable price.  If this wasn’t possible, then try to form an ally with France’s enemy Great Britain and attempt to take New Orleans by force.  If I was ruling France at this time I probably would have done the same thing Napoleon did because there was a war coming on with my enemy, the British, and I needed money badly.
