Christopher Columbus or Native Americans We have been taught the same concept of the discovery of America for hundreds of years. Christopher Columbus discovered America and we celebrate Columbus Day every year to honor his bravery and strength, but every story has two sides. Native Americans who have been settled in the “New World” long before Columbus stumbled onto the land, aren’t given the recognition they deserve. While some praise Columbus for his discoveries, many are questioning if we have forgotten the importance of Native Americans and what part they played in the Christopher Columbus story.

In 1845, John O’Sullivan famously said, “…our manifest destiny to overspread the continent allotted by Providence for the free development of our yearly multiplying millions”(Document A). His idea of Manifest Destiny was that it was America’s God-given right to spread their population, and along with them the ideas of liberty and democracy, across the continent of North America.

This resulted in America gaining most of western North America, including the half of the Oregon territory from Britain and Texas and California from Mexico. Although Manifest Destiny had a few benefits, the negative consequences far outweigh these gains.
There are far too many occurrences in which Congress was unable to reach a happy medium to appease both side in the division of the House. For example, gun violence has been relatedly discussed in congress, yet no solution has been reached while the number of victims continues to rise. Immigration reform has been reviewed many times in Congress as well and there still is no true answer to the problem or agreeance upon what the problem truly is.

Since the beginning of colonization in North America, Anglo-Saxon Americans have continuously been moving west. Some might say that their westward colonization was destined; a right given by God. While this expedition began from the colonization of the New world, it was truly identified as Manifest Destiny in the 1840s. Anglo-Saxons saw it as their duty to spread civilization and replace darkness with light. After the second Great awakening, many truly believed that God Himself had blessed the advancement of the American Nation.
