Hi...I was working on a school assignment where I have to write a letter to Thomas Jefferson. I'm almost finished but when I got to the last point it asked, "Describe one other way that the United States could use the 15 million dollars instead of spending it to buy the Louisiana Territory."
What 's another way that the U.S. could have spent the $15 million spent on the Louisiana Territory?

You don't have to make stuff up, the data's there.

Big defence budgets. Paying off debt (certainly taken more seriously than nowadays, as a young country). At war with the natives. Prolly not yet threatened by the uk, but it might have been some concern.
