    Americans were settled in the United states between 1800 and 1870 to promote trade in the western territories. Britain also promoted getting people over to the Americas by offering free land, or other incentives.

    Westward expansion pushed the native americans back west more and more, it also killed majority of the native american population.

    Westward expansion introduced many of the native american traditions into american traditions, such as the food they ate, and religion. It forced native americans become americanized, and helped boom the economy with more traders being introduced to it.
