During the expansion of the late 1800's and early 1900's shared similarities in that the Americans believed that the U.S. must expand the borders in order to keep the country growing. The Americans believed that the U.S. was the strongest of nations and they could take any land they pleased. This was shown in the "Darwinism" of the late 1800's and early 1900's. During the early years of expansion, The Americans pushed the Native Americans aside.

This brought a belief that Americans must now move from continental expansion to overseas economic and industrial expansion.
