The decision to buy Alaska from Russia in 1867 has mostly been considered a good deal for the United States. The U.S. bought Alaska for $7.2 million, which in 2015 dollars is actually $180.5 million, and that still sounds like a good deal when you consider that the state produces $10s of billions of dollars worth of goods and services every year.

Here's the story of how the United States acquired Alaska. If you like these Story Time videos, please subscribe to my podcast! http://iammrbeat.podomatic.com. Music by Electric Needle Room. http://www.electricneedleroom.com. All images in the public domain. The decision to buy Alaska from Russia in 1867 has mostly been considered a good deal for the United States. The U.S. bought Alaska for $7.2 million, which in 2015 dollars is actually $180.5 million, and that still sounds like a good deal when you consider that the state produces $10s of billions of dollars worth of goods and services every year. However, at least one economist may disagree with that claim that it was actually a good deal. Here’s the story of the Alaska Purchase Once upon a time, there was a country called Russia that grew and expanded its empire across the North American continent. From 1733 to 1867, Russia colonized as far south as modern-day California and two ports in Hawaii. Their North American settlements were called Russian America. However, in 1856, Russia was broke and weakened after the Crimean War, and they also feared that Russian America might be an easy target for the increasing British settlers in British Columbia in any future war that might break out. Resources available there were increasingly less profitable, and plus, hardly any Russians lived there anyway. Therefore, they looked to get rid of Russian America by selling it to the United States. The American Civil War delayed the sale, but after the war ended, U.S. Secretary of State William Seward met in Washington with Russian Minister Eduard de Stoeckl to negotiate a deal. After staying up all night negotiating, the two agreed to a deal, signing a treaty at 4 a.m. on March 30, 1867, with the United States buying the territory for $7.2 million, or about 2 cents per acre. (50 cents an acre in today’s money due to inflation). The Senate approved the purchase on April 9th, and President Andrew Johnson signed the treaty on May 28th. Americans chose to call the area Alaska, an Aleut name. The land, an area over twice the size of Texas, officially joined the country on October 18, 1867. Some people were angry and in shock. These critics of the purchase of Alaska even famously called it “Seward’s Folly,” or “Seward’s Icebox,” basically saying that was a lot of money to spend for an area with not much to offer. They argued no one would be able to move there and it’d also be hard to control and defend, being so far away. Yet other Americans said it was a wise move, not just for the potential resources hidden there but for the potential to next try to take over British Columbia. After the purchase, pretty much all of the Russians who lived in Alaska moved back to Russia. Not many Americans lived there either. That is, until Joe Juneau discovered gold there in 1880, and Americans finally began to migrate there. Later they came for the oil, and today Alaska is a very desirable place for many Americans to live, so much more than just an “icebox.” Was the purchase of Alaska really a good deal, or did Seward actually get ripped off? For the past 125 years or so, most people have agreed that it was a very good deal. However, in 2009, David Barker, an economist at Iowa University, shook things up when he made the controversial claim that challenged that narrative. Barker claimed that the Alaska purchase wasn’t really that good of deal after all, and that the economic benefits from Alaska could have been there for the United States without having to control it all along. Ultimately, though, I see Alaska joining the United States as a fantastic thing. Without that happening, we likely today wouldn’t have one of my favorite shows on television- Alaska State Troopers. For that, we thank you, William Seward.

From the discovery of abandoned planes; to the mystery Grolar Bear Sighting; These are 12 MYSTERIOUS Discoveries in Alaska ! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 12. Orange Slime 11. King Bear Skull 10. Giant Ragfish 9. New Species of Whale 8. Active Volcanoes 7. North America’s First Inhabitants 6. Grolar Bear Sightings So what do you get when you cross a polar bear and a grizzly bear? A grolar bear, or some people call them pizzly bears. Whichever name you choose to go with, these hybrids have been spotted roaming the wilderness and small villages in Alaska and they could become more of a common sight to behold. Polar bears appear to be losing food sources in the arctic circle and must head south in search of food or for mating. Residents of the isolated town of Barrow, Alaska, all the way up north claim that these two species have been mating and they give off a a beautiful golden appearance like we see here. It seems to be evidence of species having to adapt to their environments and these hybrids take hundreds of years to develop. 5. Atka Island Abandoned Plane Due to the sheer size of A laska, driving around streets to reach some destinations is basically impossible. This form of transportation is commonly used to deliver supplies to small towns despite the harsh weather. But this one we see here isn’t a cargo plane. In fact it’s a consolidated B-24 Liberator that was used as a heavy bomber in every branch of the US armed forces. It was often used in the campaign against the Japanese and in antisubmarine operations. This abandoned B-24 is found on the Aleutian Island of Atka and it was forced to crash land in 1942. It was on a weather reconnaissance mission but the weather was the one keeping it from landing at a designated runway. The pilot managed to escape with only a broken collarbone and the site has been managed to keep the plane preserved as a reminder of its service in WW2. 4. The Kruzof Island Discoveries Alaska is certainly home to some brutal winters and it almost seems like the last place you’d want to be stranded unless you are an experienced survivor. A sailing ship known as the Neva was famous for completing Russia’s first circumnavigation of the world between 1803 and 1807. Four years later when the ship was out at sea again a fierce storm struck off the coast of Alaska, causing the ship to sink. Only 28 out of the 47 crew members were able to make it to land but they would have to survive on a remote Alaska n island. Artifacts from the survivors show that they managed to craft tools from things such as nails in order to make fishing hooks. Other things you see in this such as musket balls, sheet copper, axe heads and spikes were discovered on Kruzof island. No skeletons were found, suggesting that they survived long enough to make it off the island. 3. Frozen Moose Discovery Normally when you think of Alaska, two things usually pop up in your head. Ice and moose, well here we got both! A teacher on a hike in Northwestern Alaska made a mysterious discovery in November of 2016 when he saw a pair of moose antlers popping up from the ground and went to go investigate. They found themselves a moose popsicle that was buried under 8 inches of ice in some parts. But wait there’s more. They found another frozen moose deeper under the ice with its antlers clashing against the other moose. They said they Their hypothesis was that the moose were getting into a fight, they stumbled into this freezing lake and drowned. 2. A Friendly Blackbear For many of you who live close to nature you might be a little more accustomed to seeing a site like this! Bears can be seen as a scary nuisance in Alaska but this one is just unbearably adorable. But for this particu lar bear found playing around in a backyard in Alaska, you might find it a tad mysterious but amazing at the same time. It’s seen playing around with an inflatable toy and even goes over to a swing set! Looks like this bear is just looking for a friend! 1.Eskimo Bronze Possibly the most mysterious artifact found in Alaska date back to 1400 years ago. It’s a bronze buckle found at Cape Espenberg that appears to have made it’s way there from China, well before the Bering Strait land bridge melted. Could the natives in this area have actually made contact with the Chinese! It appeared to have been older than the house they were originally excavating at least a few hundred year and metal crafting was really never apart of eskimo culture. Some believe that it’s likely that the ancient artifact was dropped by a Russian explorer or a whaler. But if that’s not the case, it could be evidence of an advanced trade route between Asia and Alaska during the Bronze age.

North To Alaska ~ Johnny Horton The Klondike Gold Rush The Klondike Gold Rush was a frenzy of gold rush immigration to and gold prospecting in the Klondike near Dawson City in the Yukon Territory, Canada, after gold was discovered in the late 19th century. In August 1896, three people led by Skookum Jim Mason (a member of the Tagish nation whose birth name was Keish) headed up the Yukon River from the Carcross area looking for his sister Kate and her husband George Carmack. The party included Skookum Jim, Skookum Jim's cousin known as Dawson Charlie (or sometimes Tagish Charlie) and his nephew Patsy Henderson. After meeting up with George and Kate who were fishing for salmon at the mouth of the Klondike River, they ran into Nova Scotian Robert Henderson who had been mining gold on the Indian River, just south of the Klondike. Henderson told George Carmack about where he was mining and that he did not want any "damn Siwashes" (meaning Indians) near him. The group then headed a few miles up the Klondike River to Rabbit Creek, now Bonanza Creek to hunt moose. On August 16, 1896, the party discovered rich placer gold deposits in Bonanza (Rabbit) Creek. It is now generally accepted that Skookum Jim made the actual discovery, but some accounts say that it was Kate Carmack. George Carmack was officially credited for the discovery because the "discovery" claim was staked in his name. The group agreed to this because they felt that other miners would be reluctant to recognise a claim made by an Indian, given the strong racist attitudes of the time. Further evidence of Skookum Jim's discovery is that he was eagerly followed by other miners and caused a mini rush when he later staked some claims in the Kluane Lake area in 1905. The news spread to other mining camps in the Yukon River valley, and the Bonanza, Eldorado and Hunker Creeks were rapidly staked by miners who had been previously working creeks and sandbars on the Fortymile and Stewart Rivers. In a fate that many believe to be poetic justice, Henderson, who was mining only a few miles away over the hill, only found out about the discovery after the rich creeks had been all staked. News reached the United States on July 17, 1897 when the first successful prospectors arrived in Seattle, and within a month the Klondike stampede had begun. The population in the Klondike in 1898 may have reached 40,000, threatening to cause a famine. Most prospectors landed at Skagway at the head of Lynn Canal and crossed by the Chilkoot Trail or White Pass to Bennett Lake. Here, prospectors built boats that would take them the final 500 miles (800 km) down the Yukon River to the gold fields. Stampeders had to carry one ton of goods over the pass to be allowed to enter Canada. At the top of the passes, the stampeders encountered a Mountie post that enforced that regulation. It was put in place to avert shortages like those that had occurred in the previous two winters in Dawson City. The Chilkoot Pass was steep and hazardous, rising a thousand feet in the last half mile (300 m in 800 m). It was too steep for pack animals and prospectors had to pack their equipment and supplies to the top. Some 1,500 steps were carved into the ice to aid travel up the pass. Even though it was not as high, conditions on White Pass were even worse. It was known as the Dead Horse Trail with about 3,000 animals dying along the route. Others took the Copper River Trail or the Teslin Trail by Stikine River and Teslin Lake, and some used the all-Canadian Ashcroft and Edmonton trails. The other main route was by steamer about 2600 kilometers (1600 miles) up the Yukon River. Many using this route late in 1897 were caught by winter ice below Fort Yukon, Alaska and had to be rescued. An estimated 100,000 people participated in the gold rush and about 30,000 made it to Dawson City in 1898. By 1901, when the first census was taken, the population had declined to 9,000. Throughout this period, the North West Mounted Police, under the command of Sam Steele maintained a firm grip on the activities of the prospectors to ensure the safety of the population as well as enforcing the laws and sovereignty of Canada. As a result, this gold rush has been described as the most peaceful and orderly of its type in history. The effectiveness of the Mounties in this period made the police force famous around the world, and ensured the survival of the organization at a time when its continued operation was being debated in the Canadian Parliament. The gold rush remains an important event in the history of the city of Edmonton, which to this day celebrates Klondike Days, an annual summer fair with a Klondike gold rush theme. Among the many to take part in the gold rush was writer Jack London, whose books White Fang and The Call of the Wild were influenced by his northern experiences, and adventurer "Swiftwater" Bill Gates.

The Japanese invasion of Alaska remains one of the most forgotten battles in American history. It was the first time blood had been spilled due to war on American soil since the civil war, and the first time a foreign power lay claim to American land since the War of 1812.

In her interview with ABC's Charlie Gibson, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin falsely claimed that Alaska "produces nearly 20 percent of the U.S. domestic supply of energy." In fact, Alaska's share of domestic energy production was 3.5 percent, according to the official figures kept by the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
