Sea to shining sea!!!

“It is our Manifest Destiny to spread over and to possess the whole of the continent which providence has given us for the development of the great experiment of liberty,” John O’Sullivan once said. He was the first person to use the term in 1845. Manifest Destiny is a term that describes the belief about the early pioneers going west. It was their belief that it was a God given right to go to the West and occupy the land from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. It meant many different things to many different people. One was to live in Oregon, another was to in the war in Mexico. The term was used in newspapers, debates, and paintings! It was America’s “Manifest Destiny” to spread over all the country. Mia V.
