Doctrine of Discovery


Conquest of Doctrine of Discovery. It’s an international law that was used for the colonization of America. I can hardly believe what I am hearing. In the early days of conquest, the Europeans were using the International Doctrine of Discovery and that meant they mapped bounderies and Indian territory by water. Using the Mississippi, they cornered the land by water bounderies. It is such a eye opener. The United States owned Texas in regards to Manifest Destiny. How can this be?

John J. Sullivan coined the words “Manifest Destiny.” What a term. As if we are God’s elete and had a right to the land. How could this be?

We are now in a time of Indians rights. I need to study Doctrine of Discovery. I will look to read the  book.
