History

posted by .

I am in need of some help. I am not looking for the answer, just the direction I need to take. I've search my text book, but I cannot find any specific examples. Here is the question... What where some of the repercussions of Western exoansion after 1800?

  • History -

    Consider the American Indians.
    Consider the growth of the United States as a world power.
    Consider the growth of railroads.
    Consider the impact on new cities, such as Chicago, St Louis, and New Orleans.

  • History -

    One of the main repercussions was the infringement on lands occupied by Native Americans. Explore the so-called Indian Wars.

    What about our perceptions of the lawless West?

    The transcontinental railroad and the influx of Irish and Chinese workers.

    I'm sure you'll find more -- especially the division between slave and free states prior to the Civil War.
