What is the idea that led to the expansion of the US?
The Manifest Destiny of the United States to be a continent-wide power (Manifest Destiny for short) was the idea that was used to justify and at times to drive the expansion of the United States during the 19th Century. This was the idea that it was obvious to all (manifest) that it was the destiny of the US to encompass whatever territory was at issue at the moment.

What was the reason for the idea of manifest destiny?
The concept of "manifest destiny" assumed that the US was ordained to control the continent, which had previously been inhabited only by non-industrial native tribes. When it became apparent that no other country would seriously challenge the US in the Americas, manifest destiny became the hallmark of political thinking in the 19th century.
