2 MANIFEST DESTINY Manifest Destiny What was the concept of Manifest Destiny? How did it rationalize westward migration, US expansion into Mexican territories, the Mexican-American War, and the Monroe Doctrine? The idea of manifest destiny was the general idea that Americans were destined by God, to govern the North American Continent (Mountjoy, 2009). The idea had deep roots in the American culture with the accompaniment of religion beliefs it applied, culture, and even transformations of landscape. The idea can also be described as the philosophy that drove 19 th century US territorial expansion. Manifest destiny was a precise explanation or justification for the territorial expansion of the United States as the westward migration of settlers to the American frontier. The manifest destiny also had a greater influence to the American expansion.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
