  • This is a great movement in our country's expansion. We now have control over the land to the east of the Mississippi. I predict that not all of the Natives will agree with this, and if they do not move, in time, we will do it by force. We will escort them all the way to there territories. Overall, this will be very important to our country's expansion in the near future.

  • Hi my Name is John C. Fremont, and I am an explorer. I was an explorer of the 19th century. Right now, I am surveying the area of the soon to be called rocky mountains. This will give us knowledge of a place that we have never thought to explore, and could be very important to people relocating west. They would know what to expect thanks to us.

  • It is now 2 years later, I am on my biggest expedition yet. We are exploring the Oregon country, along the pacific coast. My team surveyed along the Columbia River and returned by the way of the Great Basin region of the southwest. This is the biggest survey of a part of the US Yet. This will hopefully be helpful for people who come and colonize later in the west.
  • Overall, we have all helped in the United States triumph during westward expansion. We all helped in different ways.
