Product Description
Introduce students to Manifest Destiny, the Homestead Act, the increase in railroads, and rise in railroad monopolies as the US industrialized after the Civil War. Students complete documents that provide information on how the government encouraged westward expansion and the impact of these policies on the US. Finally, students discuss the essential question of whether they believe government-sponsored westward expansion was a positive or negative government policy.
