Sean Gibson HIS 10 B 26 August 2016 The Crumbling of the Monroe Doctrine: U.S. Shift in Foreign Policy When the United States first became a country, its founders had just gained independence from Great Britain. During his presidency, James Monroe delivered a speech to Congress known as the Monroe Doctrine. This unofficial promise and warning to other countries around the world accurately expressed the views of most Americans at the time of the beginning of U.S.history in relation to foreign affairs. It built the foundation of how U.S. foreign policy would be based on the idea of isolationism, or not interfering with other countries.
When Spain conquered the native populations in America, it brought with it the Roman Catholic religion, hoping to spread it through the new colonies. In northern America, Calvinism (A.K.A. Puritanism) was established along with other, less strict forms of Protestantism. As the protestant religion spread, so did the so-called “protestant work ethic”. This idea that one must work hard to establish personal success and to live a Godly life helped to encourage the development of capitalism as an economic structure. Meanwhile, in the Middle East and India, religious conflict was everywhere.

After the Spanish- American War, the United States became an imperialist power by annexing the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and Samoa. Americans also developed overseas trade with China and Japan. The United States proposition was to expand their region because they wanted to influence other nations for new trading locations, more resources and the increase of military protection. In spite of the fact that they had the same proposition, their political and economical motives were departed.

During the time period of 1895-1920, as the United States entered the 20th century, America based its foreign policies on imperialism and the spreading to other nations. Inquiries on whether the nation should operate its power and influence beyond the North, became the essential topic of national discussion and debate. Although anti-imperialists argued that America was foresaking the republican ideals of the nation’s founders, advocates of imperialism argued that the United States had an obligation to promote democracy, civilization, and free trade to the world. Cases such as the Spanish-American War, china, and Panama demonstrated that when it came to negotiating with other nations, the United States government often started from an idealistic
The Freedom Writers In the late 1700s, America was divided about becoming its own separate country. Some of the colonial people wanted freedom from Britain, while others wanted to remain loyal to the king. To encourage people to break away from British rule, writers would display works to show the benefits of becoming a separate country. Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Paine presented the different types of freedom to the colonial people through their writing in hopes of persuading citizens to break from British rule.

During the conflict the independent state of Hawaii was annexed by the United States. The war gave the United States predominance within the Caribbean region and allowed us to pursue our economic and strategic interests in Asia.
