Episode Details

By the 1840s, the westward movement of the American people had brought them once again into territory claimed by other people and other nations. We analyze the "Manifest Destiny" of the United States, as the nation annexes Texas, acquires the Oregon territory and forces Mexico to cede California and the southwest as a result of war.
