Other short-term outcomes included A war with those Filipinos who wanted independence A major U.S. naval and military presence in East Asia The Open Door Notes U.S. participation in suppressing the Boxer Rebellion In an unanticipated outcome, significant numbers of Filipinos migrated to work in Hawai’i and the western United States, where some of them took leading roles in organizing unions of farmworkers and cannery workers in the 1930s and after. Over the long run, after regaining control of the islands following World War II, the United States granted independence to the Philippines but negotiated a lease on military bases and a mutual defense treaty. Because of growing opposition to the presence of U.S. military personnel in the Philippines, the last base was closed in 1992.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
