It portrays the years 1846-1848 as filled with hope, ambition, piety, incomprehension, and greed. When blind devotion to manifest destiny dovetailed with nineteenth-century arrogance, a national persona was born. Attitudes about the hierarchy of races jelled - under the approving eye of America's most respected scientists. Because the success of national events seemed divinely ordained, the white populace viewed itself as "chosen" in a new world age. For African Americans and American Indians, however, the future was bleak. ; Literature of the American West Series; 209 pages
