The Louisiana Purchase was one of the most important events in the history of the United States. It would double the size of the nation, making it the largest territorial acquisition in the history of the United States. The Louisiana Territory would propel the country toward the status as a continental power, and eventually, a global power. Its vast territory and natural resources would help drive the American economy for decades to come. It serves as the breadbasket for the world, supplying wheat and grain to countries from Europe to Asia.
But, what if the Louisiana Purchase didn't happen? What if Napoleon decided not to sell Louisiana and New Orleans to America? How would it affect the United States? How would it affect modern history? What would the world look like without the Louisiana Purchase?
