Summary
The belief in American exceptionalism reached its apex during the 1800s and was expressed as a God-given passport called ""Manifest Destiny"". Among its victims were Native Americans. The Sioux resisted, eventually claiming that Indians, not the whites, were the chosen people. The destruction of Indian culture paved the way for the U.S. empire building. Frank Fiske observed this confrontation firsthand in North Dakota, where Sitting Bull was held, then killed, and Fiske's photographs enliven his account
