FRQ time. :eek: Fun stuff.
"To what extent did the debate about the Mexican War and its aftermath reflect the secional interests of New Englanders, Westerners, and Southerners in the period from 1845-1855?"
My thinking was that I talk about how the country in general wanted to acheive Manifest Destiny, the Southerners though also wanted to spread slavery throughout the new states, while Northerners didn't. Westerners were basically kind of just there, supporting both sides almost equally.
Good start? Am I even on the right track? What else could I add?
Any help is GREAT APPRECIATED! :D
