It was Thomas Jefferson’s big bold real estate deal, the 15 Million Dollar Louisiana Purchase that was just too good to pass up.

So why was this deal that was as important …

Abraham Lincoln’s election of 1860 saw an amazing 80% voter turnout due in part to extreme passions for who would be leading our divided nation, they had never and would never be as high.
