The Louisiana purchase is so important because it nearly doubled the size of are country.

And we also got new port Orleans witch is important because a port is used for delivering boats to the ocean. This was important because back then we had no highways so, basically the only fast way to travel was by water flow. The big purchase also gave us access to more rivers witch led to future exploration.
