Foot noters for the pages for the referencesThe narrative of Western settlement most often assumes the perspective of movement from east to west. However, if we were “looking east from Indian Country,” how would the narrative of the settlement of the West be different? If we were looking north from Mexico, how would the narrative of the settlement of the American West be different? If we were looking South from Canada, how would this narrative be different? In a paper of 1,750-2,000, compare and contrast these differing borderland perspectives as they relate to the traditional Western settlement narrative. Analyze key individuals, dates, and places associated with Western settlement.
