Activity Ch. 5, section 2

For a long time, the United States tried to avoid the implications of the slavery issue. What to do about slavery in the new territories gained from Mexico brought this issue to a head. The United States believed it was destined to expand all the way to the Pacific Ocean. For 5 bonus points, on a piece of paper, write down the phrase (or words) that means a type of expansionist movement across the continent. If you know it, just quietly write it down and put it in your colored folder. Do not say a thing - please. This is also a check to see who can read directions. While Congress wrestled with this political crisis being caused by the slavery issue, industrial and agricultural advances and increased immigration encouraged a period of economic growth and prosperity.
