Manifest Destiny: Persuasive Poster

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Do You Want to Travel the Journey to Manifest Destiny?

Manifest Destiny was an important part of our country's history. It allowed us to discover the many things hidden in North America. During this segment in time, we fulfilled the phrase, "From sea to shining sea." We went outside our boarders and piece by piece we built America. If I were to travel back in time, I would simply encourage the idea of Manifest Destiny. Our country wouldn't be as it is today if this opportunity was never achieved.

Our country was always hard working and ready to fight. We stood for what we believed in and reached past our limts. We had presidents and role models that showed America's strengths and weaknesses, helping us become stronger. We had the Industrial Revolution to better our society, by making processes simpler, faster, and more reliable. Then we started to journey westward, traveling different trails and routes; and encountering many things along the way. Discoveries were found westward, such as: rich land, plentiful room was found for farming and industries, gold was discovered in California (Gold Rush in 1848), and it allowed people to start a new life. I would want to be one of these people to witness the journey of finding new things and see what this country really holds. Through this event our economy grew. Without this journey, what would be our country today?
