This assignment is to make you more aware of westaward expansion in the
United States in the early to mid 1800's. Many different groups were moving
west trying to achieve our Manifest Destiny! The early 1800's were a time period
in U.S. history of exploration of the new Louisiana Territory, developing
relations with the Native Americans, movement of Native Americans off their
land, converting Native Americans into different religions, and the excavating of
gold by the 49er's.
