In GCSE History students will look at various aspects of the history of the USA between 1840 and 1975. This begins with the spread of Europeans into the heart of North America. This is the first of two quizzes looking at that topic and it focusses in particular on the spread of cattle-ranching into the Great Plains of the USA.
Cattle-ranching spread into the Great Plains, just as Homesteaders were moving there to set up small defined farms. The scene was set for conflict between the two groups. There was little enforcement of law and order in these areas until the end of the century, when state boundaries were established.
