But what should be done with the new territory?


Puerto rico

Puerto Rico

  • During the war, the US military controlled the island.

  • In 1900, military rule ended (Foraker Act), but the president of the United States got to decide PR’s governor and members of the upper house of its legislature.

  • 1917: US grants PRs citizenship.


The start of another war in the philippines

The start of another war… in the Philippines

  • Filipinos were under the impression that they would be independent after the war.

  • When they found out the US gained control they were furious.

  • Led by Emilio Aguinaldo, the Filipinos revolted starting the Philippine-American War.

  • American causalities: 4,000

  • Cost: $400 million (20 times the price the US paid for the islands)

  • In the Philippines:

    • Set up a government similar to Puerto Rico (President chooses governor, governor then choose people for upper legislature)

  • Would not gain full independence until 1946.


How did americans feel

How did Americans feel?

  • "... we have debauched America's honor and blackened her face before the world. . . And as for a flag for the Philippine Province, it is easily managed. We can have a special one - our States do it: we can have just our usual flag, with the white stripes painted black and the stars replaced by the skull and cross-bones.“

    Mark Twain
