Abstract

This dataset covers federal disbursements related to 222 Indian land cessions made within the area ringed by the Louisiana Purchase of 1803 between 1804 and 1970. The payments cover the period from 1804 to 2012. The information is presented in five tables that categorize different types of disbursements (i.e. original payments on treaties and various types of courts awards and settlements). The data was collected for, and is further described, analyzed, and referred to, in Robert Lee, “Accounting tor Conquest: The Price of the Louisiana Purchase of Indian Country,” The Journal of American History (March 2017).
