AP ID: 2X305894 D.M Evaluate the extent of which ideas of Manifest Destiny motivated United States expansion… The ideals of Manifest Destiny motivated the United States greatly to the point of becoming immoral. Manifest Destiny could be defined as the Euro American belief that they were fated by god to expand America and American ideals westward. However, this expansion would not come easy considering the many challenges that were faced as a result of the expansion. Which is why the motivation of Manifest Destiny proved to be very strong, because it gave the Americans the strength and courage to continue expanding, no matter the restrictions. It gave them a purpose no matter how immoral their actions were. Document 1 expresses the concerns of the Cherokee Nation about this, “ Manifest Destiny”. When the Americans came to the decision to expand, they had completely disregarded the fact that Native American were inhabiting those territories.
