    On the trail of manifest destiny

    Two hundred years ago this week, Meriwether Lewis, William Clark and their Corps of Discovery set out to explore the American West. Sunday TIMEOUT asks what the expedition, its leaders and the Shoshone woman who was their guide still mean to us today

    it means to me that a bunch of bigots decided it was their right to take over the land and shove people out. that's my defintion of manifest destiny. my AP U.S. History said it in nicer terms, but that's basically the gist of it... the expedetion, i guess, menat the beginning of the end for the native americans living west of the appalacians and east of the mississippi, and the end of the beginning for the still relatively newly freed former colonies...
