Prof. Stiehler History 1301 Unit 3 Learning Objectives Chapter 9 1. Outline the nation’s territorial growth in the 1810s. -The Rush-Bagot agreement (1817) guaranteed that the British would never try to invade the United States from Canada and vis-versa. -The Anglo-American convention of 1818 set the border between the lands of the Louisiana Purchase and Canada. -Between 1810 and 1812 the U.S. had annexed the area between the Mississippi and the Perdido River in what became Alabama, claiming that it was part of the Louisiana Purchase. -In 1816 U.S. troops first crossed into East Florida in pursuit of hostile Seminole Indians. After taking command in 1817 Jackson occupied East Florida in April and May of 1818, known as the First Seminole War. -In November 1818, Secretary Adams informed the Spanish government that the U.S. had acted in self defense and that further conflict would be avoided only if East Florida was ceded to the United States. The Adams-Onis Treaty (1819) relinquished Florida to the United States.
