Summary
From Mexican landowners in California to Native American tribes in the Black Hills, students discover various perspectives on territorial claims to the West and the history of U.S. annexation. This segment explains how events, such as the Texas War of Independence, opened the door to U.S. annexation. Diary excerpts, letters, and other primary resources vividly portray the experiences of early Oregon Trail settlers and the Mormons
