Alaskan Purchase - When Was Alaska Sold To USA?

Since the Russian Tsar Alexander II was not particularly interested in Alaska, the Minister of Foreign Affairs at the time of President Abraham Lincoln advocated for it that the United States buy Alaska from Russia.
And so, on 20 March 1867 the area of Alaska was sold to the United States for $ 7.2 million dollars (~200 million current dollars)!
