    1.The 19th-century doctrine or belief that the expansion of the US throughout the American continents was both justified and inevitable.

    When people expanded west to find their own land and to 'conquer' the 'new world'. Ok so when you think about manifest destiny think about lots of wagons & families packing up to go west and start their lives in a new land. It would take months for them to get there, so they had to have supplies, wagons, animals to pull their wagons, weapons etc. I believe there is an actually meaning behind 'manifest destiny': It was the belief of the people of the colonies that the US had a 'destiny' to expand west! (and run off all of the natives too, YAY!) Does... that answer that for you?

    P.s. LOTS of information on manifest destiny on the internet - it's no small topic, there are plenty of like 'branches' into new topics and questions on manifest destiny. It's a broad topic I should say. Is this for another project or something?

    Is this for like - a project or something? American history is hardly fascinating, but manifest destiny/expansion was always my favorite part (also because of the native americans, mostly).
