Chapter 21 1. What were the so-called “foundations of empire”? (Slideshare Images 2-8) The “foundation of empire” was in its simplest form colonies but for sake of the U.S. by the mid 1800’s-1900’s it was states. Like France during King Louis XIV the imperialist country was rolling in wrath and riches. This was partly due to new land domination by way of getting the people accustomed to their lifestyles, educated and increasing their health for their own economic gain. Back to the U.S., with the spread of manifest destiny and growing from 13 colonies to nearly 50 states in less than a hundred year span, you see the benefits and tactics of the “foundation of empire” with big business, factories and farm work. By WWI one could question if the U.S. had maximized the foundations on the North America content; therefore, inspiring to assist other counties and obtain Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Philippines later in history. 2. What was the value of Hawaii? - (SSIs 12-14) The value of Hawaii was its resources and the halfway point between the Philippines and the US and could be used a refueling station and center for protection. Hawaii had a huge sugar-cane market and it could be traded tax-free with the United States if they allowed dominance when the Hawaiians planned a takeover. In exchange the US would provide protection. In a 1887 treaty Pearl Harbor was written over to the US to be used as military ground in exchange they can resume selling/ trading sugar-cane duty free. 3. What were the concerns of the anti-imperialists? - (SSI 4) The concerns of anti-imperialists were concerned with the United States seizing control over the Philippians around 1898. In response the anti-imperialists league was created to raise concern over legal rights, economic and moral rights. They were complete opposite for the US to extend their power and influence on other cultures and people. Anti-imperialists argue that it went against the very thing that the United States fought for again Europe, to gain their independence, because they were being ruled by a nation that did not listen to their concerns. 4. What was the Teller Amendment? The Teller Amendment was an agreement between the United States and Cuba and promised that after they win the Spanish American War they will leave the Cubans alone to govern themselves. As promised in 1898, the US left in 1902 when they won Spain's rule over Cuba. This made the US the largest powerhouse in the Western Hemisphere now. 5. What sort of interests did the U.S. have in China at this time, and what did this have to do with our relationship with the Japanese?

After the US pushed out the Spanish from Cuba and won the Western Hemisphere as the largest influence, the Secretary of State, John Hay, had his sights set on China influence for trade. Japan, Russia, Germany, France and Britain all had parts of Chinas shores for trade and Hay wanted to tap into this new market. The United States was expanding rapidly during this time due to a huge

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
