Wednesday Regency: Louisiana

April 30 saw several important events happen in the US history, who knew such an innocuous day could be so important?

1803-The US purchased the Louisiana Territory from France for $15 million.
1812-Orleans Territory becomes the 18th state---Louisiana

And, if you really wanted to know what else happened on April 30, in
1789 George Washington took the Oath of Office on the balcony of Federal Hall on Wall Street in New York City.

Hmm, a menage set in the Louisiana Territory? All those Frenchmen and Native Americans? Hapless girl seeking her fortune, or oh! Escaping from interesting idea. Must think on it more.
