What caused people to go out and expand into the western US? Did they come in waves?

At first you can start by saying that it was the concept of manifest destiny. This was the belief  that it was

America's right and destiny to expand from the Atlantic ocean all the way to the  Pacific Ocean. For the common

person it was just the desire for land and a better future. An important wave came during and after the Great 

Depression of the 1930's. Again these people were trying to escape the poverty that existed at  the time.
