divine destiny of America!

Julian Hawthorne as wrote an article in 1839 which, while not using the term "manifest destiny", did predict a "divine destiny" for the United States based upon values such as equality, rights of conscience, and personal enfranchisement "to establish on earth the moral dignity and salvation of man".

- manifest destiny 21st century!

In the 19th century, "Manifest Destiny" was a widely held belief in the United States that American settlers were destined to expand throughout the continent:

Historian Frederick Merk says; this concept "Manifest Destiny" was born out of -
"A sense of mission to redeem the Old World by high example...generated by the potentialities of a new earth for building a new heaven".

 - this is what it means, to be an American! we really have a righteous mission
even with all of our mistakes
and imperfections!
