Meanwhile, there was a growing attitude in the country that many embraced called, Manifest Destiny. This concept embraced the idea that the United States not only could, but was destined to, stretch from coast to coast and served to hasten western expansion.

Manifest Destiny expressed the belief that it was Anglo-Saxon Americans’ providential mission to expand their civilization and institutions across the breadth of North America. This expansion would involve not merely territorial aggrandizement but the progress of liberty and individual economic opportunity as well.

By the end of the century, expansionists were employing reasoning to argue that it had become the nation’s ‘Manifest Destiny’ to extend its influence beyond its continental boundaries into the Pacific and Caribbean basins.
