During this period in America, great cities sprung up in the east, vast lands in the west were opened to millions of pioneers, and many came to see “the good life” as theirs for the taking. All this came at a price: Native Americans were pushed out of their traditional lands, a brutal slave empire grew in the south, and the forests east of the Mississippi were largely destroyed. In this lecture course, we will trace the impact of several key players: Andrew Jackson, Henry Clay, John C. Calhoun, Daniel Webster, John Q. Adams, and slave-rebels Nat Turner and Cinque.
