Objective: By the end of the lesson, students will evaluate to what extent Jefferson kept his pledge for states’ rights by examining the decisions he made once he began exercising presidential power.

Outcomes of the Louisiana Purchase Ideal of great agrarian republic Precedents for future expansion acquisition of foreign territory acquisition of foreign peoples incorporation into the Union on an equal basis Napoleonic Code still utilized in Louisiana as its legal system
Corps of Discovery scientific observations knowledge of the Indians maps Aaron Burr Conspiracies Attempted to plot the secession of New England Hamilton exposed the conspiracy and Burr challenged him to a duel Burr tried to secede the western territories but that was exposed.

Impressment Chesapeake Affair Embargo Act-forbade the export of all goods from the United States Illicit trade ballooned and Jefferson convinced Congress to pass enforcement legislation Non-intercourse Act-trade with all but Britain and France
The U.S. Congress would restore its embargo against France or Britain, whoever did not repeal its commercial restrictions. Napoleon played on the same promise with Britain Napoleon wanted the US to keep its embargo against Britain-Why? Madison thought the British would repeal their Orders in Council rather than see the US trade with France
War Hawks in Congress-late 1811 Many from the South and West Upset with: Impressments British Orders in Council Indian threat to pioneer settlers Tecumseh & Tenskwatawa never to cede land to whites unless all Indians agreed Scalp buyers in Canada nourishing Indians’ growing strength Fall 1811-Battle of Tippecanoe William Henry Harrison marched to Tecumseh’s headquarters and were soundly beaten
British arming of hostile Indians Whoops of the war hawks On to Canada Madison turned to war to restore confidence in the republican experiment-Why? June 1, 1812-Madison asks for war Split in the voting House:79-49 for war Senate: 19-13 for war Explain why New England opposed the war for a free sea?
