By converting garbage into pork, pigs kept city streets cleaner than they otherwise might have been, but the pigs themselves befouled the streets and those who ate their meat - primarily poor families - ran greater than usual risks of infection America was a bawdy, hard-edged, and violent land. We drank more than we ever had before or ever would again In , the fast-growing city of Rochester, New York, with a population of approximately 8,, had nearly one hundred establishments licensed to sell liquor, or one for every 80 inhabitants After in American streets, barrooms, stores, public conveyances, and even private homes it became nearly impossible to avoid tobacco chewers Spittoons were provided in the more meticulous establishments, but men often ignored them.
The floors of American public buildings were not pleasant to contemplate The floor of the Virginia House of Burgesses in was 'actually flooded with their horrible spitting,' and even the aisle of a Connecticut meetinghouse was black with the 'ejection after ejection, incessant from twenty mouths,' of the men singing in the choir. Discussion Goal 2: To gain an understanding of the expansion process that took place in North America between and At the turn of the 19th century, Americans began to think about how to expand their continental boundaries.

- The Broadband Problem: Anatomy of a Market Failure and a Policy Dilemma.
- The Unity of the Common Law: Studies in Hegelian Jurisprudence;
- Biology of Amphibian Tumors.
- Heavens Keep (Cork OConnor, Book 9);
- Blueprints Neurology (3rd Edition)?
- On Cooking: A Textbook of Culinary Fundamentals (5th Edition Update).
- C How to Program.
But despite these formidable obstacles, in just 53 years, the Americans moved confidently across the continent, conquering the natural barriers, Indian Nations, and the foreign nations. And they accomplished that task without any reliable transportation - no roads or trains - and without any type of communication - no telegraphs lines or phones. So, just how did these newly-independent people come into geographical and political control of an entire continent in just 53 years?
The answer is that they moved aggressively and confidentally across the continent because they were armed with their strong belief in their God-given right to conquer and tame the land and to make it a safe haven for democracy. In so doing, Americans moved the geographical process of Manifest Destiny via four avenues: Purchase, Diplomacy, Appropriation, and War.
And as our geographical boundaries shifted, so did our population. As you can see below, as more land became available, more Americans moved into and populated the west in just 40 short years between and Discussion Goal 3: To understand the reasons Americans moved westward to expand the boundaries of the United States.

Five underlying reasons were largely responsible for westward expansion: The belief in Manifest Destiny The desire to explore and map out the North American Continent The search for religious freedom The desire to expand our democratic principles The hope for economic opportunity Belief in Manifest Destiny At the very heart of the American concept of geographic expansion was their belief in Manifest Destiny.
