  2. I would say the Louisiana Purchase (From the French), and the Alaska Purchase from the Russians. I maybe wrong though. Manifest Destiny was pretty much the expansion of land from coast to coast.

  3. Definitely the forced removal of Native Americans from their ancestral lands to Oklahoma (Trail of Tears), as well as the push to encourage settlers to move west (the Homestead Act). These are just two, but there are several including the annexation of Texas (1845), the Mexican-American War (ultimately leading to the Mexican Cession, 1848), the Gadsden Purchase (1853, from Mexico), and the Oregon County dispute's resolve with Great Britain (1846). You could also include the rapid expansion of rail road.
