Western Expansion Project

Storyboard Text

  • It's unruly to take away rights as well as land for the Native Americans that live among us
  • Dad haven't you heard of manifest destiny before, this is our time to expand west into new territories.
  • I'm thinking about heading down to Texas, I'm hoping things might be able to go in the right direction for me.
  • But how on Earth will you even get to Texas.
  • I'm pretty confident in my decision, now what do I need for my journey
  • Are you sure you want to do this, I heard Steven Austin's a nutjob and no one should listen to him
  • If you must go my word of advice is just to be safe and smart. Since the annexation of Texas things have been crazy down there. Especially because the whole Alamo situation was insane, but just be safe son.
  • What's the Alamo I never heard of any of these things
  • The Alamo was a very important event that led to Texas's Independence. And it was a huge part of the Mexican / American revolution, but after all of that they signed the Treaty of Guadalupe which gave us the Mexican Cession
  • Thanks to Sam Houston who talked to people such as Santa Anna we were able to have the Gadsden purchase which has increased the US all the way to the Rio Grande
