   Construction took place from the 1860s to 1910s.
   The work was very dangerous due to terrain [cliffs, valleys and
    mountains] weather [extreme heat and cold] and equipment used
    [dynamite].

    resist by using effective military tactics.
   Eventually the Nez Perce fled to Canada to avoid U.S.
    Forces but later returned and accepted life on the
    reservation.
    Reservation System and the Dawes Act
   In 1891 Senator Henry Dawes led the passage of the Dawes Act
    [a.k.a. the Dawes Severalty Act]

   To solve the Indian Problem land was reserved [set aside] to
    remove from their lands.

   Vast areas called reservations were created to make room for
    American settlers. “Indians” were required to live on these
    reservations.
Frederick Jackson Turner and Helen Hunt Jackson
   Two American authors who chronicled [wrote about] the
    effects of Western expansion were Frederick Jackson Turner
    and Helen Hunt Jackson.

    Americans by the United States.
               Assignment: What if?
   After thinking about the events you learned involving Western
    Expansion you need to think about how things could have been
