episode 934: The Purchase of Alaska (Encore)

In 1867, United States Secretary of State William Seward signed a treaty with the Empire of Russia to purchase the territory of what would be called Alaska.

The United States purchased it for 2 cents an acre. 

At the time, it was called one of the worst deals in American History. Today, it is considered the greatest bargain of all time.
