Ten random things: April 30

Ten U.S. states that are formed in whole or in part from land obtained as part of the Louisiana Territory:

  1. Colorado
  2. Minnesota
  3. Wyoming
  4. New Mexico
  5. North Dakota
  6. Oklahoma
  7. Nebraska
  8. Montana
  9. Texas
  10. South Dakota

The U.S. purchased the Louisiana Territory from France on this date in 1803. It's easy to remember the year, because (as the Schoolhouse Rock song "Elbow Room" points out, "1803" rhymes with "Louisiana Territory."
