Summary, etc.:
The size and shape of the United States wasn't always as we know it today. After the birth of the nation in 1776, the next 100 years witnessed an unparalleled growth both in size and population. From the original thirteen colonies along the Atlantic seaboard, the United States looked westward as far as the Pacific Ocean in order to expand its borders. This series takes a look at the people and events that make this kind of growth possible, from the exploration and opening of the prairies, to finding routes through and around the Rocky Mountains. The promise of liberty and land drew people from all over the world who were willing to risk everything for the "American Dream."
Subject: Erie Canal (N.Y.) > History.
