Such movement was encouraged by Presidents Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe - collectively known as the Jeffersonians - who believed that the country's destiny was to have total control over the entire North American continent. The Jeffersonian presidents would have used any means, short of all-out war, to expand the boundaries of the United States. Filibusters and Expansionists explores the motives of those presidents in office during that time and also the successful and unsuccessful intrigues and episodes of the movement."@en
