1. Standard of the French Republic Marker
Inscription.  The Standard of the French Republic flew over all French territories in North America, including what is now Oklahoma. In 1800 Spain gave the area known as the Louisiana Territory back to France when French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte reclaimed the land. Napoleon had conquered a large area of the European continent and planned to create an empire in North America. However, he later sold the Louisiana Territory to the United States.
