To get to the California Gold Rush there was three main methods
As shown some people took a ship all the way around South America
Others went west via wagon trains (you may want to reference the trails section)
A third and less used method was to tale donkeys through the marshy areas in South America
The United States government declared that the southern border of Texas would be the Rio Grande. The U.S. Calvary ignored a warning from the Mexican army. Fighting broke out and three weeks later congress declared war on Mexico. Fighting continued to around September 1847. In February 1848 the treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo was signed. The treaty recognized Texas as a US state and the US received a large chunk of land for 15 million That land later became California, Nevada, and Utah, parts of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming.
In 1803, President Jefferson bought Louisiana from France for 15 million dollars.
The purchase included any area that drained into the Mississippi River from the West.
One issue to the Louisiana Purchase for the Americans was the U.S lacked money. Their solution was to borrow money from Britain.
The British were anxious to see Louisiana occupied by a weak United States rather than Napoleon’s powerful army, so they offered the large sum to the US at 6% interest.
At the beginning, Jefferson offered Napoleon $2 million for a small tract of land on the lower Mississippi. Jefferson, who was impatient at the lack of news, sent James Monroe to Paris to offer $10 million for New Orleans and West Florida. At the same time, France had offered all of Louisiana to Livingston for $15 million.
