Binding: Perfect Bound
The American colonists were determined to move west, ever since the first settlements in North America. Even before the first shots were fired in the American Revolutionary War, in the year of 1763, the British proclamation to halt westward expansion was met with colonial disregard. As increasingly more settlers moved out west, past the Appalachian mountain. This independent mindedness and desire for self-tenacity is precisely the thing that leads to the cause for independence. While westward expansion was beneficial for the young nation, it was a tragedy for the native tribal nations and the native environments.
