Manifest Destiny in Paintings

  1. 1. Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam And the deer and the antelope play Where seldom is heard a discouraging word And the skies are not cloudy all day Home, home on the range Where the deer and the antelope play Where seldom is heard a discouraging word And the skies are not cloudy all day How often at night when the heavens are bright With the light from the glittering stars Have I stood there amazed and asked as I gazed If their glory exceeds that of ours CHORUS Where the air is so pure, the zephyrs so free The breezes so balmy and light That I would not exchange my home on the range For all of the cities so bright CHORUS Make a list of things that come to mind when you think of Westward Expansion. What sources have informed your version of the West? Oh, I love those wild flow'rs in this dear land of ours The curlew, I love to hear scream And I love the white rocks and the antelope flocks That graze on the mountaintops green How is the settling of the West portrayed? CHORUS What is destiny? http://www.archive.org/details/HomeOnTheRangeByJohnCharlesThomas
