Product Description
This is a 32 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the Western Expansion in the United States. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

After the Civil War, hope of economic opportunity lured migrants and immigrants west to the Great Plains and Rocky Mountain region. Settlers battled Native Americans for desirable lands, carved out farms, and built mines and ranches.
