The map would look a lot different, the french and spanish owned most of the land in what is now the U.S. I wonder if they would have sold that land
to england like they did to the U.S.? would england have even tried to buy the land to expand their colonies in north america?
It seems like france/england/spain were always at war with each other so a land sale doesn`t seem very likely. Russia would still probably own alaska,
mexico would still probably own most of the western U.S. and be a world power now.
The axis would have probably won WW1 and there never would have been a WW2.
History would be so much different than we can even imagine.
ETA: you got me curious so I did a little googling:
The Louisiana Purchase (French: Vente de la Louisiane "Sale of Louisiana") was the acquisition by the United States of America in 1803 of
828,000 square miles (2,140,000 km2) of France's claim to the territory of Louisiana.
18 May 1803 - Napoleonic Wars: The U.K. redeclares war on France after France refuses to withdraw from Dutch territory.
nope, france wasn`t going to sell england any land in 1803 because they were at war with england.
Undoubtedly fighting would have taken place in north america between France and the english (colonist), someone was going to lose some land in north
america at the end of the war either the french or the english.
