I just had to share this with you all given the US membership size here.
On Canadian History Channel we have a series that runs each monday night covering the USA and its early formative years and history.
I love this period as you can tell from my alias.
Well i learnt something i did not know last night in relation to the purchase of territory.
They mentioned how Louisiana was purchase from the French.
I knew the French helped in the war of independence and i knew Louisiana had a French element but never went in search of how and why.
Boy the powers that be back in the old days sure carved up the world like it was their own to hand out.
Purchased at a price of 3 cents an acre. If only one knew back then Eh?
Fascinating stuff this period of history.
Previous episode had a mention of George Washington, boy sure wish we had guys like him as leaders on the global stage today.
Wish the history channel would do more of this kind of programming and less garbage that aint history. Oh well......
