In the early 1800s, the country was growing fast. Pioneers headed west to find homes. But the land was not empty--it was home to Native Americans who had lived there for centuries. Pioneers and Native Americans would soon come to conflict. Why were Texans told to "Remember the Alamo?" How did settlers travel west? What happened in 1848 that changed California forever?
