US Expansionism – an introduction…

Coined by journalist John O’Sullivan in 1845, the term “Manifest Destiny” was a driving force in 19th century America’s western expansion. It was the notion that Americans and the institutions of the US are morally superior and therefore Americans are morally and divinely obligated to spread those institutions from coast to coast in order to free people from the perceived tyranny of the European monarchies. The era of US territorial expansion is sometimes called the Age of Manifest Destiny.

Manifest Destiny had its origin in the Puritan settlements of New England and the idea that the New World was a new beginning, a chance to correct problems in European government and society — a chance to get things right.
