Q.3. What did the Frontier mean to the Americans? 

Ans :- For the Americans frontier did not mean any fixed boundary line, but at did mean ever changing and extending boundary line. 

America is known today came into existence at the end of the eighteenth century. At that time it occupied only a fraction of the land they now cover.
