Manifest Destiny and Western Expansion

Manifest Destiny is a term to describe Americans desire to explore and expand across the entire continent during the 19th century. Westward Expansion began in the United States following the end of the War of 1812. Between 1816 and 1821, six new states were added to the union, and pioneer families swept westward to fill these new lands. While westward expansion impoved the lives of many Americans, it displaced thousands of Native Americans.

How did manifest destiny affect western settlement?

Manifest Destiny was the belief that the general population during the early years of America held. They thought it was destined by God for America to stretch from ocean to ocean. So, the American government bought and fought for the remaining land that separated the US from the pacific, gaining land from Mexico, France, England, and a few other countries. The government used propaganda and advertising to gain the interest of the American people and convince them to move westward, thus a huge migration of people moved west in order to conquer the virgin land and complete manifest destiny.

How was manifest destiny justified?

Considering what is now the United States, it use to be taken up by the European countries except for a strip of land in the East that was the U.S. Once Manifest Destiny started, the lands were starting to expand and the U.S. started fighting for the lands.

It stated that Mexico gave up all claims to Texas and agreed that the Rio Grande was the boarded between the U.S. and Mexico.
