After the Civil War (1865) the United States concentrated its efforts on expansion. First into the west by systematically removing Native Americans from the Great Plains and connecting the heavily populated regions of California & the North East by railroad. As the railroad increased the need for workers to build the railroad and work in the ever growing industrial boom promoted a large influx of immigrants from Europe, China, & Latin America. The problems associated with the flood of immigrants and aggressive urbanization forced America to deal with the problems & corruption in politics, business & society. Secondly, the U.S. focused on expanding beyond its borders. In order for the U.S. to become a world power it believed it must not be shut out of foreign markets. As other nations slowly annexed small countries the U.S. began its quest for a modern navy which would allow the U.S. to influence politics, commerce, and economics into Latin America, Asia, & the south Pacific. As predicted, competition led to World War. At the conclusion of the war, The U.S. witnessed a decade of economic prosperity which was followed by financial collapse and decade long depression, which would only end as the U.S. would prepare to enter a World War.
