The Case of Marbury and Madison
The argument between the two federalists was called Marbury vs. Madison. This case resulted from a petition to the Supreme Court by William Marbury, who had been appointed as Justice of the Peace in the District of Columbia. It was established by John Adams, who was about to resign as President, but the papers for the commission were not delivered by John Adams Secretary of State: James Madison. When Thomas Jefferson assumed office, he ordered the new Secretary of State, to withhold Marbury's and several other men's commissions. The Supreme Court eventually denied the petition and ended the argument between Marbury and Madison.
The United States was still small; mainly the east coast. They wanted to gather more land, and also some other extra benefits. Land in the west offered great trading routes to foreign countries. The Louisiana Purchase was the deal that Americans were looking for. They had to pay an estimate of twenty million dollars. This land although was Frances, but they still agreed to go with the trade. Later, after it was bought, Americans started to move and search through the land. Americans wanted to travel because there was new and better land for crops, remote areas and just because the area was different. Many expeditions and some of most famous and common ones are Lewis and Clark Expedition and Pike Expedition. These explorers wanted to tell the other side of the country what it was like, what and who they could expect. Soon enough, people came scrambling, deaths along the way. Lewis and Clark are very popular, especially when the encountered Sacagawea which gave them an advantage of exploration. Later in the 1900’s, gold was discovered leading to the gold rush which brainwashed peoples minds with greed, and causing thievery due to low law enforcement.
War With the Natives
The United States had made the deal of the Louisiana Purchase which allowed Americans to travel into the native lands. The main reason was because of the treaty that the natives made with the British, Americans were enraged and took over the land as a consequence for the natives betrayal. The battle took near the Prophets home such as Tenskwatawa. It took place outside of Prophetstown, at the confluence of the Tippecanoe and Wabash Rivers. The Americans repelled the Indian attack and burned the village and as a result, most of them again fled to Canada. The Battle of Tippecanoe occurred on November and lasted a short while because the Natives fought with barbaric and low technology weapons. In addition, their incompetence lead to their defeat because the Americans had planned a strategic plan to take over and push them out. The war was led by William Harrison and the opposing forces were led by Tecumseh’s growing Indian army led by his brother Tenskwatawa.
