b. Explorers had long sought the elusive Northwest Passage, which would provide an easier trade route to the Pacific rather than going around the country. Lewis and Clark similarly sought this route; their journey showed that an overland trail to the Pacific was possible. c. The team was sent to establish relationships with the Indians and learn their ways; there were no designs on dominating them at this point. d. Lewis and Clark did seek to build relationships with Indians, but not for trade purposes per se. They were also not concerned about the French and Spanish, since any people settled in the territory were now citizens of the United States. e. Many settlers in what was called the New World came searching for precious metals, but Lewis and Clark’s expedition was meant as purely scientific, not commercial. Question 10 a. Correct answer. Burr joined with other Federalists in New York and New England who were concerned about the new power and potential foreign intrigue the Louisiana Purchase might provoke and plotted to entice these regions to secede. Hamilton revealed Burr’s plan to Jefferson, and in anger, Burr challenged him to a duel. b. Hamilton was no fan of Jefferson’s former vice president Burr, but the duel between them was not over any talk of suspected corruption while Burr was in office. c. The conflict between Hamilton and Burr was not over any actions Hamilton took. d. It was Burr, not Hamilton, who schemed to create a new confederacy from the new western territories and seize Spanish-controlled Florida and parts of Mexico as well. e. Hamilton and Jefferson were political opposites and rivals. Hamilton had nothing to do with Jefferson’s decision to drop Burr from his cabinet during his second term in office.

Question 11 a. The British Orders of Council in 1806 blocked all shipping to French ports, including neutral American ships, but this is not the definition of impressments. b. Warring European nations, especially the British and French, often did seize the contents of neutral ships traveling in their waters, especially if they were seeking to deliver goods to an enemy’s port. c. Correct answer. Impressment describes the capture of American seamen who were then forced into military service by the British. d. The U.S. Embargo Act—and not impressment—marked a prohibition on the export of American goods. Knowing that the French and British relied on American raw materials and foodstuffs, Congress passed the act in retaliation for violation of its neutrality on the seas. e. The French and British did resell the goods they seized from allegedly neutral U.S. commercial ships, but this is not impressments. Question 12 a. Jefferson expected the British to fold under the weight of the embargo; they did not.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
