In my other post I wrote
"I'm have other 3 that I want you to check to see if they are correct. BTW - I have one more question I have trouble with."
Here it is:
Why did the Louisiana Purchase important to the US?
btw - I'm a little curious about this question also
Take a look at this map.
Why do you think the Louisiana Purchase was important?
also I'm going to post my answer for that question I asked that I needed helped on (the one when you gave me the info., Why was Toussaint L' Ouverture important to Haiti?)
i looked at the map
it seem big
My Answer - The immediate reason for the purchase was to provide continued access to the Gulf of Mexico via the Mississippi River port of New Orleans.
That's true. But the Louisiana Purchase was huge and extended the United States a long way toward the west.
am i correct to that question
Toussaint L'Ouverture led the slave revolt in Haiti - it was successful. This was he first successful revolt by the slaves in the new world. Napoleon was furious because Haiti was a major money source for France. This occurred in 1801. Napoleon sent 54 ships and 23,000 men to find this rebel, but he alluded them for a long time. Finally he was forced to surrender, he was put in chains, put on a French ship, put in prison, he died a year later, but Haiti was free. L'Ouverture was the slave grandson of an African king.
i found this but I don't want to write all of this
that would be plagiarizing and wrong
how can i put this into one sentence
Why was Toussaint L' Ouverture important to Haiti?
The reason why Toussaint L' Ouverture important to Haiti is because .....
so that's the reason why Louisiana Purchase important to the US?
Laruen -- I'm sure you can figure out why L'Ouverture was important to Haiti and write it in one sentence.
He successfully played off the French against the British and Spanish to ensure the countries freedom.
is my answer is correct?
You have some unnecessary words there. Please read the first two sentences in the Wikipedia article I posted.
