17 Ruling The Supreme Court’s Decision
Judiciary Act of 1789 (SC reviews federal cases) unconstitutional. The act was from Congress and it is the Constitution who gives the SC direction. Marbury kept his apmt. Importance of that Ruling Established Judicial Review which allowed the SC to review any laws that Congress makes to ensure they are constitutional.

18 The Beginnings of the LA Purchase: The Pinckney Treaty
By 1800 more than one million settlers lived between the Appalachian Mountains and Mississippi Most settler were farmers and relied on Mississippi to ship their crops to the port at New Orleans


20 The Pinckney Treaty In 1795 U.S. negotiated the Pinckney Treaty
Guaranteed Americans’ rights to ship goods down the Mississippi and store goods in New Orleans

21 A Secret Deal In 1801, Spain secretly gave New Orleans and the Louisiana Territory to France Jefferson worried about how Napoleon Bonaparte would rule the area

22 1802 the Governor of New Orleans stopped allowing Americans to ship their goods through New Orleans
Americans wanted to go to war Jefferson decided to send James Monroe to Paris to buy New Orleans from the French

23 Meanwhile on France’s End…
Meanwhile in Haiti, a revolution led by Toussaint L’Ouverture had driven the French out Without Haiti, the French would not be able to defend Louisiana during a war In France, another war between France and Britain was about to begin and the French needed money to fund it


25 Napoleon's Offer France offered to sell ALL OF THE LOUISIANA TERRITORY for $15 million (about 4 cents an acre) Because it would take months to get Jefferson’s advice, Monroe accepted the offer This agreement would almost double the size of the country and give the U.S. control of the Mississippi


27 Jefferson’s Predicament
The Constitution nowhere states that the President has the power to buy land from a foreign country What should he do?

28 Democratic Republicans
Costs & Benefits Democratic Republicans Federalists Farmers Native Americans

29 Jefferson’s Predicament
Jefferson decided he could purchase the land because the Constitution said the president could make treaties The Senate approved the treaty and Congress voted to pay for the land
