Why did Thomas Jefferson buy the Louisiana Territory?
He bought Louisiana because he knew he could get more land to farm. The land was cheap and it was cheap because Napoleon the French leader at the time was scared that Spain or England was going to claim it. Jefferson wanted the land because it could help with transporting goods along the country. He did that because he didn't want any state to be struggling. With this purchase the U.S. nearly doubled its size.
