How is the Mormon migration part of the manifest destiny?
The migration of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to Utah helped the idea of Manifest Destiny progress in that a new territory was settled by the Church. However, there is a subtle distinction between the two migration patterns. Manifest Destiny was the idea that the United States had the moral privilege of expanding from coast to coast; the Church migration, on the other hand, was done out of necessity to escape persecution and was done as a group of colonists rather than as agents for United States expansion.
Why did the manifest destiny started?
Manifest destiny meant that it was the God-given right for Americans to settle the land from sea to shining sea. It was the "responsibility" of Americans to gain the valuable natural resources that the land had to offer. Manifest Destiny took place from about 1820-1860, and then Homesteading began. Americans moved west from all different lifestyles, places, and even countries to obey "God's Command", to pursue religious freedom, and sometimes just to do something new, daring, exciting, and adventurous. The new settlers migrated mostly in covered wagons called "Prairie Schooners". The men, women, and children walked most of the time to help save the oxen's strength. Pioneers endured harsh conditions and left behind their former lives to pursue manifest destiny. Although there are many accounts of the hardships that the settlers faced, they were causing hardships for another group of people. The Native Americans had to face new diseases and new people on the land that was always theirs. They were forced off of their land so that manifest destiny could be continued. Manifest destiny was helped along by the Oregon Trail, the Railroad, Mountain Men, The Independence of Texas and the war with Mexico. What the people involved in manifest destiny did so long ago has helped shape who we are as a country today.
Asked in Joseph Smith
What did Joseph Smith have to do with manifest destiny?
Manifest Destiny was a term coined in the early part of the nineteenth century to describe the notion that the United States would continue to expand until it reached the Pacific coast. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, on the other hand, moved west primarily to preserve its security and grow as a people. The emmigration of the church was only one of several westward movements that helped fulfill the idea of Manifest Destiny. As each group moved west, the borders of the nation expanded to include new populations of Americans who were seeking their fortunes in a new land.
What is another way to say manifest destiny?
It was the belief that colonists could, and should, migrate west-- no matter what stood in their way. There is a group of modern scholars who assert that "manifest destiny" could be considered ethnocentric or even racist, since it often involved the belief by white, Christian colonists that their culture and religion were superior, and that they had a divinely given right to take over new lands and make them part of the United States, even if those lands were populated by the darker-skinned people then called "Indians." But other scholars accept "manifest destiny" as a sincere effort to explore new territories in the west and expand the country.

What group did the term manifest destiny apply?
Manifest Destiny was the term used to describe the idea in the United States, beginning in the 1840s, that the US was destined to expand from ocean to ocean and all of North America from north to south. It developed, in part, from a great surge of nationalism (patriotism) following the War of 1812, as the nation expanded west. Because of our economic and political superiority, and due to the rapid growth of our population, and because it was God's will, our superior civilization should take over the others on the continent. In 1845, John L. O'Sullivan wrote an article about the annexation of Texas and first used the term, manifest destiny. The idea was revived toward the end of the 1800's during the Spanish-American War, and also led to the the US becoming an imperialistic nation at the turn of the century.
