Why were Americans interested in expansion northward?
A few years ago I spent several hours driving north through the forests of northern Maine. There were very few towns -- and those that we saw were poor. It was drizzly and gloomy. After we crossed the mountain-top border into Quebec, the sun came out. We saw prosperous farms and towns stretching out on a fertile plain. Quebec at that point was immensely more appealing than Maine.
However, please check your book -- as I suspect your teacher expects you to say that we wanted to expand to the north for the fur trade and to claim British land.
cool. ill go with the fur trade and to claim British land to be safe but thanks for the story!!:)
What wasteh evidence that Americans might expand into British North America?
