To understand this war one must know the background. Spain had ben occupying Cuba for many years. Cuba became resentful of their unfair treatment and began to rebel. American saw this rebellion as a mirror to their own struggle against British forces some 120 years earlier. In Hearst’s papers he showed the Cuban Rebels as noble patriots, though many of them had resorted to acts of terrorism.
targeted third world Latin countries in defense of the communist threat. The communist threat, thus became a gateway in which the U.S. used to intervene in countries that offered resources and cheap labor. In 1960 the Guatemalan Civil War erupted after the U.S. military intervened in fighting against Guatemalan peasants and Mayan descents who were fighting for basic human rights in a corrupt government. Furthermore, in 1979 the Salvadorian civil war broke out as a result of a communist conversion by left wing guerilla groups against a corrupted government. In addition, the U.S. contributed to the civil war by providing the Salvadoran military with weapons and arsenal, thus increasing the violence in the country and prolonging the war.
The outcome of this war affected America’s foreign policies, economy, and society as a whole. The first important effect the war of 1812 had was the way it changed foreign policy for America. One of the major problems before the war, was the way Britain forced neutral nations trade to go through British authorities first. Not only that but they’d take American seamen and force them into the British navy. This whole ordeal caused great upset in America and cause them to put up a bill that stated they would cut off trade with either Britain or France if the other dropped their trade restrictions.
Racial differentiation has been formed throughout history to create and reinforce structures of power. The British as well as the United States have implemented laws to stop others from reining on their hierarchy of power. In the late nineteenth century really hits on this idea, not only on immigration laws but also the impression of prostitution and Venereal Disease. According to the book, “Race Over Empire: Racism and U.S. Imperialism, 1865-1900,” by Eric T. Love, talks about how race has moved, shaped, and inspired the late-nineteenth-century U.S.
In the 1830’s America was highly influenced by the Manifest Destiny which was the territorial expansion of the United States across North America towards the Pacific Ocean. The United States government believed that the Native Americans were a problem that was hindering Manifest Destiny from being fulfilled .At the trail of tears native Americans were persecuted against heavily. Until 1828 the federal government had Cherokee rights to their land and in that same year Andrew Jackson was elected president and this all ended. Throughout Jackson's life he had fought Indians, beginning with his campaign against the Northern Creek Indians of Alabama and Georgia. He led the Tennessee militia to fight Seminoles in Florida in a war known as the "First Seminole War" just seven years before his election into the presidency .
The areas of Africa where they had been sold into slavery were experiencing intense civil wars, and a number of ex-soldiers found themselves enslaved after surrendering to their enemies. South Carolinians thought it was possible that the slaves' African origins had contributed to the rebellion. Part of the 1740 Negro Act, passed in response to the rebellion, was a prohibition on importing slaves directly from Africa. South Carolina also wanted to slow the rate of importation down; African-Americans outnumbered whites in South Carolina, and South Carolinians lived in fear of
Webster’s definition of revolutionary is: “constituting or bringing about a major or fundamental change.” I believe that “revolutionary” does mean there is a fundamental change but I also believe it means a new innovative change that is brought to all lives. The effects of the American Revolution changed the lives of white men (wealthy and non-wealthy), women, and African Americans. The Stamp Act of 1765, “was wide-reaching and offended virtually every free colonist” (Chapter 5 Study Outline). “Opposition to the Stamp Act was the first great drama of the Revolutionary era and the first major split between the colonists and Great Britain over the meaning of freedom” (Chapter 5 Study Outline). The East India Company was financially failing, so the British government agreed to market the company’s Chinese tea in North America.

The two conflicts that occurred in the 20th centuries was The Spanish- American War and The Russo-Japanese War. The two ways The Spanish American War conflict challenged Western colonial empires, was between the Spain and the United States, they both gained control over Cuba and Puerto Rico. Also, the Americans took over the Philippines and made it their territory. The Russo-Japanese War conflicts challenged Western colonial empires because it caused the military conflict, when Japan forced Russia to abandon its policy in the Far East, and when Great Britain and the Japanese allies became powerful.
The American Civil War was a national conflict that divided the nation and brought about dramatic changes to America for years to come. The once powerful country found itself at war with its own people. By the early nineteenth century, differences between the North and the South involving different economies and political beliefs began to develop and became problematic. The expansion of slavery in territories and the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860 caused more tension that led several Southern states to secede from the Union and form their own nation known as the Confederate States of America. On April 12th1861, Confederate soldiers bombarded the Union at Fort Sumter and the Civil War officially began.
“The policy of this country ought to be…to nationalize our country, so that we shall love our country,” states Senator John Sherman in Document B. Throughout the years of 1860-1876, several events occurred, that were said to have “amounted in a revolution” over time. Complete succession of South Carolina from the Union in December of 1860 led a trail of states to leave over the course of time, leading to issues for the Union. Equal rights and privileges, and power of the federal government became topics that most often created enormous debates in these chaotic 17 years. The United States had a lack of nationality and obviously there was lack of unity.
The wars that Europe was in during the 18th century had affected the colonies. The leaders in Britain had fought over land and all the riches of the world. There were several series of wars that involved England and the French. By the end of the 17th century, it had become obvious that the Spanish rule in North America had become lacking and would recede. This also applied to the Dutch, because they had lacked backbone in North America.
The experience of battling in World War I alongside presentation to distinctive racial mentalities in Europe affected the dark veterans by making a far reaching interest for the opportunities and uniformity for which they had battled. Those veterans discovered conditions at home as awful as ever. Some were struck even while wearing their outfits in public. This era reacted with a much more activist soul than the era some time recently, encouraging blacks to battle back when whites assaulted them. A. Philip Randolph presented the term the "New Negro" in 1917; it turned into the catchphrase to portray the new soul of militancy and fretfulness of the post-war period.
The Spanish American war was a war between the United States of America and Spain. It lasted 4 months in the year 1898. The purpose of the war was for Spain to loss control of Cuba, the Philippians, Guam, and Puerto Rico. It all started when Spain started to put pressure on Cuba to increase trade to the Americas so they could get the majority of trade with America. This caused Cuba to fight for independence.
There were several issues that lead to the war between America and Great Britain. In the few years before the war was declared there were several issues that enraged the Americans. In the text, there is explaination of how the British were in need of sailors to fight the French, "For seamen the danger was heightened by the British renewal of the practice of impressment." (Tindall and Brown, Page 249) In the "impressment" of American sailors traveling to trade, they were forced into joining the British Royal Navy. This angered the Americans and is one of many reasons why the war began.
