The Americans were taking over their land and changing the way they lived. | The American's world view influenced their choices and actions by what they thought was most important for their lives and their country.

3: Certain skills and forms of knowledge were needed for success in America during the 1800's. For example, people in rural areas would benefit from knowledge having to do with farming and animal herding whereas, people in urban areas would benefit more from knowledge having to do with different industries and businesses.

4: The telegraph was invented because after our country was expanded there was a need to communicate with people that were far away in other parts of America. | Samuel Morse invented the telegraph to make communication faster and more efficient. | Cause and Effect | American Indians did not support the invention of the telegraph because it allowed Americans to communicate easier and it made it possible for people to settle farther west into their land.
