Compare and Contrast American Expansion in the late 1800's with the expansion in the 1900's. (How the expansion efforts were the same and how they were different.)

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.

For centuries Americans had been moving westward and had been developing a continent. The Realization that all the frontier land was gone and since the Civil War there was an incredibly productive industrial complex that Americans had built. This brought a belief that Americans must now move from continental expansion to overseas economic and industrial expansion.
