Westward expansion made the U.S grow more than 525,000 sq miles of land. Natives: The Westward expansion impacted natives by pushing them out of their homes, betraying tribes, killing people, and speaking ill all because of entitlement.

This resulted in loss of people, culture and over all spirit. The Americans somehow broke what so little might have been there from there trays and betrayed so many.
