MOVING WEST ESSAY There where meany good and bad effects of the westward expansion. the trans-contenental Railroad was a huge part of moving west and indians were devistated in the process. the spanish american war became a result with this. Manifest Destiny , was the strong concept which heavily influenced americans in the 1800's. It was the very strong idea that americans should move westward for the greater good of the country. The whole purpose of Manifest Destiny was to populate all of america. Manifest Destiny had meany problems such as it took a very long time to move west and it was dangerous for meany familys as well. The Trans-Contenental RailRoad was later created to move people, supplies and live stock out west. The railroad was a very helpfull creation for moveing westward. This nation wide movement was in effect very hard on native american indians. when settlers started moveing west they were moveing into native amercan territory. later on people wanted to take their land over even though indians had already been there for thousands of years. the goverment at the time later decided to "get rid of the indians". one of the ways the american goverment was goiong to "get rid" of the indians was to kill off there food and lively hood.
