Westward expansion map depicting Lewis & Clark's exploration route, various pioneer trials + Use with Focus Activity
In the early 1800s, the land west of the United States was very undeveloped. Many considered it to be uncivilized and underdeveloped even though it was home to many native peoples, as well as setters from France, Spain, Mexico and other countries. However, the U.S. believed it was their Manifest Destiny to spread the idea of liberty and democracy to this land. They also felt it was their duty to civilize it by bringing in roads, railroads, the telegram, etc.
This map is a good example of one that can be placed in the students' notebooks.

Manifest destiny - Wikipedia. Painting by John Gast (1872) called American Progress, allegorical representation of modernization of the New West. Columbia leads civilization westward w/ American Settlers.
American Progress, a painting by John Gast depicting American westward expansion, used to demonstrate the concept of Manifest Destiny, 1872
"In the 19th century, Manifest Destiny was the widely held belief in the United States that American settlers were destined to expand throughout the continent."
John Gast, American Progress, (circa 1872) celebrates U.S. romantic nationalism in the form of westward expansion – an idea known as Manifest Destiny.
This painting (circa 1872) by John Gast called "American Progress" is an allegorical representation of the modernization of the new west. Here Columbia, a personification of the United States, leads civilization westward with American settlers, stringing telegraph wire as she sweeps west; she holds a school book as well. The different stages of economic activity of the pioneers are highlighted and, especially, the changing forms of transportation.
W10 John Gast's American Progress 1872 represents Manifest Destiny - the 19th c. widely held belief in the US that American settlers were destined to expand throughout the continent. Historians have for the most part agreed that there are 3 basic themes to Manifest Destiny:The special virtues of the American people and their institutions; America's mission to redeem and remake the west in the image of agrarian America; An irresistible destiny to accomplish this essential duty.

Interest: The Texas Revolution: 1833: The Mexican Government rejects the Texas Constitution. Texans were unhappy with Mexican rule, therefore they created a list of changes they want from the Mexican government. This was denied by the Mexican Government
Flags of the Texas Revolution The flags used during the Texas Revolution represented the diverse beliefs of the settlers of the period. In a few designs, the flag signified the desire for reconciliation with Mexico and a return to government based on the Mexican Constitution of 1824. Most of the flags, however, represented the Texan's desire for total independence from Mexico, and their willingness to fight and die for that cause. Read more...
