Kennedy’s Inauguration Then & Now: A Comparative Analysis The inauguration of John F. Kennedy was and remains today a dynamic and emotional event which profoundly shaped America and its future.

Manifest destiny also greatly influenced the national sentiment of the time, which can be found in Jackson’s speech. Jackson uses nationalist and colonialist rhetoric in this speech, particularly when he discusses his idea of progress. At the time of this speech, nationalism and colonialism greatly impacted both racial and economic policies in the United States, and the preceding Indian Removal Act of 1830 was also reflective of both the United States’ racial and economic policies, and greatly impacted the racial makeup and economy of the country for the rest of the nineteenth century and beyond.

The Manifest Destiny was a belief formulated by Americans that our nation should expand from coast to coast. The idea was formulated because of Americans pride and nationalism made them believe it was their destiny to expand the United States to the western coast. The Louisiana Purchase was the first act that started to fuel the idea of the Manifest Destiny, followed by Westward Migration, and the eventual wars that would take place in the new westward regions.
