The Purchase Debate “Although the size of the still-young country more than doubled, the American public was apprehensive about the Louisiana Purchase. Many of the northeast states were afraid that their power would be diluted by the new states, or that a rush of migration westward, lured by cheaper land prices, could empty out the eastern population. In addition, if new states would be admitted, it would have to be determined if they were ‘free’ states or ‘slave’ states.” - Based on this quote which people were against the Louisiana Purchase?

Jefferson – Assess the accuracy of this statement "In recent years, Hamilton and his reputation have decidedly gained the initiative among scholars who portray him as the visionary architect of the modern liberal capitalist economy. Jefferson and his allies, by contrast, have come across as naïve, dreamy idealists. The Jeffersonians were reactionary utopians who resisted the onrush of capitalist modernity in hopes of turning America into a yeoman farmers' arcadia. At worst, they were proslavery racists who wish to expand the institution of slavery and protect slaveholders' rights to own human property.“ – Historian Sean Wilentz
