For two centuries, Japan only traded with a few Dutch and Chinese traders. Determined to open Japan to trade with the United States, Commodore Matthew Perry worked for months, negotiating back and forth with Japan, before a treaty was signed on March 31, 1854 that allowed the United States to begin trading with Japan.

The Japan Opens to Trade map includes a colorful labeled teacher’s map and an unlabeled student map that the child can label and color.

In May of 1804, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark lead the Corps of Discovery in an expedition to the Pacific Ocean. This expedition, started by Thomas Jefferson, had the goal of establishing U.S. sovereignty over the land as well as finding a continuous water route from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Their journey lasted until September of 1806.

The imperial family of Japan emerged around the year 700, but until 1868, the royal family had high prestige but little power. By 1550, the political power of Japan was subdivided into several hundred smaller domains controlled by local “daimyō” (lords), each with his own army of samurai warriors.
