The 1803 Louisiana Purchase effectively doubled the size of the young American republic, just 20 years after winning independence from Great Britain. The historian Calloway concludes: Burned villages and crops, murdered chiefs, divided councils and civil wars, migrations, towns and forts choked with refugees, economic disruption, breaking of ancient traditions, losses in battle and to disease and hunger, betrayal to their enemies, all made the American Revolution one of the darkest periods in American Indian history.  The British did not give up their forts in the West (what is now the eastern Midwest, stretching from Ohio to Wisconsin) until 1796; they kept alive the dream of forming a satellite Indian nation there, which they called a Neutral Indian Zone.

US personnel would be temporarily deployed to East Timor, on a rotational basis, and through periodic ship visits, during which US forces would conduct "humanitarian and assistance activities throughout East Timor." It was futilely suggested again and again for over 2 years. One of the last major unresolved problems was the method of electing the executive. A number of proposals, including direct election by the people, by state legislatures, by state governors, and by the national legislature, were considered.

Here is where the United States laid the groundwork for becoming a major power, since the strategic depth offered in North America was the Greater Mississippi Basin.

Prior to that day, American merchant ships had safely sailed the oceans, confident of the protection of history's greatest navy – Britain's -- 800 warships strong. That safeguard was especially important for Americans, most of whom were concentrated along the eastern seaboard with its deep water ports and excellent shipbuilding timber -- a seafaring people heavily dependent on foreign trade John Quincy Adams and the Politics of Slavery: Selections from the Diary
