    Manifest destiny was actually what white people believed to be their god given right as a white person and to take indian land they moved westward which is westward expansion

    Manifest Destiny was the idea that God wanted the American people to go West; westward expansion was the result of the idea.

    No, not really. Westward expansion was the physical movement out west. Manifest destiny was the belief that the U.S. was destined to move out west. Some even considered some type of Divine destiny. You are comparing actual vs. theoretical.
