Characterize and describe American westward expansion from 1803 (the Louisiana Purchase) to
1860 (Lincoln’s election and South Carolina secession). In what ways did westward expansion
strengthen the Union between the states, and in what ways did it challenge that Union? All things
considered, did westward expansion during this time act as mostly a unifying force, or was it mostly
a divisive force? How so (in other words, in what ways did westward expansion challenge the
Union, and in what ways did it support the Union)? Did westward expansion make the bond
between the states mostly stronger, or did it make the bond mostly weaker? What were the
consequences of westward expansion, also called “Manifest Destiny,” on the unity of the United
States?
