It's the story of both the Good and the Bad, of United States Imperalism AKA Manifest Destiny, and how the USA got this vast area of land in North America: by wrestling it away from Native Americans and Mexicans, as well as the unexpected opportunity of the Louisiana Purchase. Should be mandatory viewing for every U.S. Citizen.
