The Purchase of Alaska: Folly or Fantastic?

Students examine the conditions of the United States' purchase of Alaska from Russia. They chronologically organize the historical information of the purchase and the controversy that ensued, as well as identify key issues and results of the purchase. Students will then consider whether or not the purchase of Alaska as a US territory was a worthwhile investment based on the economic and cultural data.
