Guess when this was written…

He would be a rash prophet who should assert that the expansive character of American life has now entirely ceased. Movement has been its dominant fact, and, unless this training has no effect upon a people, the American energy will continually demand a wider field for its exercise.

  1. Gah! I recognize the passage/theme of it from my AP US history class, I just can’t recall the beginning of it. This was… quite after the whole Manifest Destiny era, but definately before our current time. Gaaaaaah. I hate knowing things and not remembering them.


  2. 🙂 Not yet! You’re right about it being after the Manifest Destiny and before our time though…
