On March 30, 1867, the United States reached an agreement to purchase Alaska from Russia for a price of $7.2 million. The Treaty with Russia was negotiated and signed by Secretary of State William Seward and Russian Minister to the United States Edouard de Stoeckl. Critics of the deal to purchase Alaska called it "Seward’s Folly” or “Seward’s Icebox."

Join us on the 150th anniversary as we commemorate this historic Treaty of Cession, the history of Alaska, and the important role it has played in the history of the United States.

  2. Whenever I hear a student or any graduate asking this question, I always think that the right question they should or ought to ask themselves in place of this is 'Did I allow my school to prepare me for society?'
