Why was the mississippi river important to americans that had moved west...
answer: this is a guess but i hope it was : -)
explanation: the mississippi river is important due to its necessity in american commerce. cities such as new orleans, st. louis and minneapolis all get water from the river. the mississippi river provides hydroelectric power to a number of different cities. the river is the second longest in the united states and has 25 locks and dams.americans moved west of the mississippi river in the 1830s-40s for many reasons. one reason was the american people believed the americans should control the land from the atlantic ocean to the pacific ocean. this belief, called manifest destiny, encouraged the united states to acquire land and to have american people move to these lands.

c) their obsession allowed them to coexist with many other native cultures because of their peaceful nature.
