1867  Alaska Purchase: US takes formal possession of Alaska from Russia, having paid $7.2 million

 

This made it possible for continental U.S. citizens to learn about exciting new things like oosiks, muktuk (whale blubber), muklucks, giant bears, cariboo, walrus, corrupt politicians, gold rushes, oil pipelines and more. 
 

It also brought the “Deadliest Catch” and other series about intrepid people conquering the wild out doors.
