        Manifest Destiny | Wild Nevada

        Manifest Destiny, our nation’s idea that is it our “obvious fate” or God-given right to own the entire continent of North America from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, drove western expansion in the 1800s. As the United States expanded westward, it brought enlightenment, freedom, technology and democracy with it. In this inquiry, students will challenge their understanding of manifest destiny by looking at multiple perspectives on how westward expansion affected the Native Americans living in the Great Basin, in Nevada. By analyzing multiple perspectives on the topic, students will gain a deeper understanding how Native Americans responded to the closing of the frontier.
