The army consisted of 17,000 soldiers, including four African-American regiments (called Buffalo soldiers) of regular army and the volunteer Rough Riders, a cavalry unit.

    35. American Expansionism & the Panama Canal

    36. Imperialism Defined as the domination of one country by another. European imperialists had seized vast territories in Africa and Asia. Many Americans felt that the moment was now right for U.S. imperialism. With the closing of the American frontier, the nation continued its expansion overseas. http://asms.k12.ar.us/classes/humanities/worldstud/97-98/imper/Philippines/USA.HTM
    37. Some advocates argued that since the United States was now an industrial power, colonies could provide needed raw materials for American factories and a guaranteed market of U.S. manufacturers. http://www.jackdaw.com/pc-282-65-american-imperialism.aspx
    38. Others saw colonial expansion as a way of showing that the United States was a great nation, arguing the country should grab a few colonies before nothing was left. Inspired by Manifest Destiny. http://en.dcdatabaseproject.com/Image:Uncle_Sam_BNW_1.jpg
    39. In particular, these voices favored American control of the Caribbean, building a canal through Panama, and the acquisition of islands in the Pacific as coaling stations for ships trading with Asia. http://www.canalmuseum.com/
    40. Opponents felt that imperialism violated America’s democratic principles. They reminded citizens that America was also once a colony and had fought a war with Great Britain to break the chains of imperialism. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/de/Washington_Crossing_the_Delaware.png
    41. During these Imperialist years, the United States acquired a colonial empire in the Pacific consisting of the Philippines, Guam, Hawaii, Samoa, and Midway. http://www.historywiz.com/laimp-mm.htm
    42. Formerly part of the Spanish empire, the Philippines came under U.S. rule after the Spanish-American War. Filipino rebels had expected independence and fought against U.S. control until they were defeated in 1902. Filipino Rebels http://asms.k12.ar.us/classes/humanities/worldstud/97-98/imper/Philippines/USA.HTM http://people.bu.edu/juliango/publications_files/GoFostercover%2520copy.jfif
    43. In the mid-19th century, American settlers built sugar and pineapple plantations on Hawaii. These settlers overthrew the Hawaiian queen in 1893 despite her protests. American companies such as Dole (Sanford Dole) had a vested commercial interest in Hawaii and the American gvoernment supported those interests. After the outbreak of the Spanish-American War, Congress voted in favor of the annexation of Hawaii in 1898. http://harwich.edu/depts/history/pp/imperialism/sld006.htm
    44. The U.S. announced the Open Door Policy, favoring equal trading rights for all foreign nations in China. In 1900, the Box Rebellion threatened foreigners in China. An international army, with U.S. participation, crushed the rebellion, but Americans opposed any attempt by other nations to use the rebellion to dismember China. Boxer Rebel http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Boxer1900.jpg
    45. Gunship Diplomacy In 1853, the United States had forced open an isolationist Japan to Western trade and influence when Commodore Matthew Perry landed there with American navy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:PerryFleet.jpg
    46. Panama Canal Military importance: Naval strategists believed that the United States needed a large navy and a canal through Central America to establish itself as a world sea power. http://www.history.navy.mil/photos/images/h73000/h73411.jpg
    47. President Roosevelt took steps to build a canal that would allow ships to cross between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans without circling South America. The Isthmus of Panama, the narrowest point in Central America, was a natural place to build the canal, but posed may challenges. http://harwich.edu/depts/history/pp/imperialism/sld049.htm
    48. Natures Challenges and the Panama Canal Tropical climate Disease-carrying mosquitoes Mountains http://www.healthsystem.virginia.edu/internet/library/historical/medical_history/yellow_fever/assets/panama.jpg

    50. In return for U.S. protection, the new government of Panama gave the United States control of the Panama Canal Zone, a ten-mile wide strip of land through the center of Panama. http://www.smplanet.com/imperialism/joining.html
    51. Construction of the canal began in 1904. To prevent malaria and yellow fever, the U.S. Army cleaned up swamps where infected mosquitoes had bred. http://yellowfever.lib.virginia.edu/reed/images/03-NC.jpg http://www.tea.state.tx.us/student.assessment/resources/online/2006/grade11/ss/images/8graphicaa.gif

    53. It took the Army Corps of Engineers ten years to build the enormous locks and to remove millions of tons of earth to complete the canal. http://www.smplanet.com/imperialism/joining.html
    54. In the early 20th century, the U.S. government extended the Monroe Doctrine through the Roosevelt Corollary. http://www.mexicolore.co.uk/uploadimages/169_02_2.jpg
    55. In 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt declared that the U.S. would act as an “international police power” in Latin America. Rather than let European nations intervene to collect their debts, the U.S. would act for them. http://history.ucsc.edu/history25b/4-24slides_files/slide0010_image058.jpg
    56. The Roosevelt Corollary to the Monroe Doctrine was used to justify sending troops into Haiti, Nicaragua, Honduras and the Dominican Republic. In this way, the United States protected its interests in the Panama Canal. Later, President Wilson intervened in both the Caribbean region and Mexico. www.csub.edu/~gsantos/jpgs/img0099.jpg
    57. World War I The Great War http://www.doglegs.net/cclovett/World%20War%20I.jpg

    62. In this atmosphere of competition, many feared Germany’s growing power in Europe. In addition, various ethnic groups resented domination by others and longed for their nations to become independent. Many ethnic groups looked to larger nations for protection (for example: Russia & Europe’s Slavic peoples.)

    63. Imperialism For centuries, European nations built empires, slowly extending their economic and political control over various peoples of the world. Colonies supplied the European imperial powers with raw materials and provided markets for manufactured goods. http://web.library.emory.edu/subjects/humanities/history/Nationalism/Nationalism.jpg
