ESSAY

Imperialism is unequal economic, cultural, and territorial relationship, usually between states. Imperialism in the U.S. began in the late 1800s. The U.S. expended in the 19th century. When the nation expanded there were many benefits both positive and negative. For intense a positive benefit is that we are a larger country after annexing states. A negative benefit is that we took over without giving the other countries a chance, so that caused us to have enemies. I personally feel that it is good that we expand the U.S. because it benefits America, and other countries also. It benefits America by fueling economic growth, supporting good jobs at home, raising living standards and helping Americans provide for their families with affordable goods and services. It keeps our economy open, dynamic, and competitive, and helps ensure that America continues to be the best place in the world to do business. It might have been a bad idea also because after the nation expanded the U.S. has been getting into conflicts with other countries.

The United States declared war on Spain on April 11, 1898 and led by Admiral George Dewey, the Navy led a surprise attack on the Spanish navy that was a stopping place in the Philippines and defeated it and also attacked other Spanish territories. On December 10, 1898 Spain was defeated and signed the Treaty of Paris and then United States gained the territories of Puerto Rico, Cuba, and Guam. Then, another example of American Imperialism is The Panama Canal because Columbia told United States that you have permission to build the Panama Canal but, United States wanted to build it for cheaper so they fought for Panama’s Struggle for Independence from Columbia and built it for cheaper. Finally, China gave United States full trading rights after it helped the European nations to defeat the boxer rebellion and because European nations had spheres of influence on parts of China it happened. You have seen that there are both ups and downs in Imperialism it gives one country more pride while another country is saddened by another country forcibly taking over and sometimes it is good as long as you help them get away from a another superpower and then give them independence.

American Pro Imperalism mainly benefited the U.S. It also benefited others also. In this image you see that Uncle Sam trys to teach kids from different countries about civilization. The kids are upset because they feel that the only thing that the U.S. is trying to take everything from them. Thats where Uncle Sam comes in at an quotes "But just take a look at the class of head of you and remember that, in a little while you will feel glad to be here as they are!"

The Americans thought that imperialism was an good idea becuse they could take the things that were worth money, such as the smaller territories land. Anything they would do for nations would not help no one but thereselves. If you look at this picture you will notice that it bias, because in reality they should be wearing the U.S. on there backs. We are the ones who were trying to steal things from them.

March of the Flag

Fellow citizens, it is a noble land that God has given us; a land that can feed and clothe the world; . . . It is a mighty people that he has planted on this soil . . . It is a glorious history our God has bestowed upon his chosen people; . . .a history of soldiers who carried the flag across the blazing deserts and through the ranks of hostile mountains, even to the gates of sunset . . .

The Opposition tells us that we ought not to govern a people without their consent. I answer: The rule of liberty that all just government derives its authority from the consent of the governed, applies only to those who are capable of self-government. I answer, We govern the Indians without their consent, we govern our territories without their consent, we govern our children without their consent.

They ask us how we will govern these new possessions. I answer: If England can govern foreign lands, so can America. If Germany can govern foreign lands, so can America. If they can supervise protectorates, so can America. . . .

What does all this mean for every one of us? It means opportunity for all the glorious young manhood of the republic, the most virile, ambitious, impatient, militant manhood the world has ever seen. It means that the resources and the commerce of these immensely rich dominions will be increased . . .

In Cuba, alone, there are 15,000,000 acres of forest unacquainted with the axe. There are exhaustless mines of iron. . . . There are millions of acres yet unexplored. . . . It means new employment and better wages for every laboring man in the Union. . . .

Ah! as our commerce spreads, the flag of liberty will circle the globe . . . And, as their thunders salute the flag, benighted peoples will know that the voice of Liberty is speaking, at last, for them; that civilization is dawning, at last, for them Liberty and Civilization, those children of Christ’s gospel . . . Fellow Americans, we are God’s chosen people. . . .

Source: Excerpt from Albert J. Beveridge’s Senate campaign speech, September 16, 1898. Beveridge gave this speech while he was campaigning to become a senator for Indiana. The speech helped him win the election and made him one of the leading advocates of American expansion.

 

This docuement is talking about how Americans feel that they should be able to have more or take over things like other countries such as England, and Germany. They feel if there able to take over land so can we. For example theres lots of land in Cuba that has not been explored that the Americans feel that they can put to use. It will benefit many men in the union.
