American Expansion, 1820-1900

In 1898, Frederick Jackson Turner declared the frontier the defining feature of American culture, but American authors had uncovered its significance much earlier. This program turns to three key writers of the early national period (James Fenimore Cooper, John Rollin Ridge, and Walt Whitman) and examines the influential visions of American manhood offered by each author.
