Since 1906, each National Monument in American has been designed by the sitting President as a personal memorial of a parcel that he deemed deserving of preservation for future generations. America's National Monuments tell the story of the nation's past and present glory. In Legacy of the Great Plains we will visit the 10 monuments associated with America once vast grasslands. VOLUME THREE: MANIFEST DESTINY. When President Thomas Jefferson purchased the Louisiana territory from the French in 1803, he essentially added the Great Plains to the United States. From that point forward, Americans looked to form a nation from sea to sea . . . A great continental nation. This push west was called Manifest Destiny. Two National Monuments commemorate the heroic struggle of ordinary Americans to fulfill the American dream of Manifest Destiny. This volume contains two chapter: Scott’s Bluff National Monument and Homestead National Monument.
