    It was smart move by Americans to buy the land from French because if they fought for it, many people would died and it would be a war between the too sides.

    It was good in the way that they bought it. They traded it in the peaceful way. There were a lot of wars going on during that period but they decided to traded it. So, good way of earning.

    The Lousiana Purchase was the first mark into creating the United States of America. It was the begging of making the USA into a world super power. The purchase gave acres of land to the US and with more territory comes power.

    I feel as if buying the land was a positive move.It helped increase popualation and made the US grow to the point where the size was doubled.

    i agree that it was a good buy. it opened up new land for settlers to move west. it was also very cheap for the amount he got, so it was quite the bargain.
