The city's present-day location is at the confluence of two major rivers, the Mississippi and Minnesota. The headwaters of both rivers originate in northern Minnesota.The land that became St. Paul was originally part of a larger area purchased by France as part of its territory in North America claimed from Britain after 1763 following defeat in the Seven Years' War (called "French Louisiana" or "Louisiana"). After Napoleon sold it to the United States as part of an 1803 treaty ending hostilities during his First Empire, it was known as Missouri Territory; this included all lands west to Iowa and south to Arkansas Territory (Arkansas Post).
