Going West Essay It is a beautiful feeling to start an exciting journey like I am The time is April of 1836 and I am a 32-year-old farmer Like many of my fellow Americans Im moving westward with my family and few wagons full of friends My good friend Gunther tells me that the Age of Jackson is over and its our destiny as a nation to expand I must say this change is very exciting Only I doubt that our group can go on very long without civilizations control I predict that come winter stealing from one another will be inevitable But that problem is nothing to worry about right now I am more occupied with thinking about what Im going to plant when we reach our destination the Oregan Trail My son John is eager to help me prepare our new farmland and tame the wilderness But in the meantime we are busy enough with sustaining our nomadic shelter limited variety of food and our insufficient clothing My family and I have experienced some very intense moments these few months We even encountered some Caddo Indians They called us Texas which in Caddo means friends The Caddo Indians seemed to be very friendly but a bunch of farmers seemed to express some hostility towards them I cant wait to meet new people and maybe with some help build a ranch Indians do have some right to be defensive from us whites moving westward but our moving is just as natural as a wolf escaping its tracker Boundaries like the Proclamation of 1763 were even set up by Great Britain though it could not stop the determined traveling colonists All we seek is to live free and push our limits as a nation The saddest part of our expansion however was President Monroes treaty Which later became President Jacksons Indian Removal Plan in 1830 I heard that many Indian tribes were moved
