What territory did the United States buy from France in 1803?
The Louisiana Territory was a large area west of the Mississippi River. In 1803, the United States bought the Louisiana Territory from France for $15 million. It was the largest acquisition of land in American history. Farmers could now ship their farm products down the Mississippi River without permission from other countries. This was important because the city of New Orleans was a major shipping port. The Louisiana Purchase doubled the size of the United States and expanded it westward.
