Westward Expansion (Paperback)
In the 1800s, American began to push west, sometimes into lands that weren't yet a part of the United States. This movement came to be called western expansion. Some believed the nation had a right to this land, and that it was the country's destiny. However, this romantic view doesn't reveal what this settlement meant: bloody conflicts, Native American displacement, and a renewed battle over slavery. This insightful volume provides the information that readers need to know about this critical curricular topic through thought-provoking images and achievable content. This volume will thrill readers who want more support than what is typically presented in history texts.
