Global Trade, Imperialism, and the Spanish American War By the mid to late 19th Century, industrialized countries turned to imperialism to satisfy their needs for natural resources and new trade markets. Although the United States was slow to adopt imperialistic policies, it did acquire Alaska as part of its “Manifest Destiny” expansion and had developed a significant presence in Hawaii. By the end of the 19th Century, American planters in Hawaii and the U.S. military pushed for the annexation of Hawaii. By 1897, the United States had annexed Hawaii and was on its way to becoming a global imperial power. While the annexation of Hawaii was in process, the United States continued to keep its eye on Cuba. With its close proximity to the United States and excellent sugar plantations, Cuba was an American entrepreneur’s dream. By 1886, there were several American financed sugar plantations located in Cuba. In 1895, Cuba moved to gain independence from Spain. The resulting war left Americans split on how to react. While the American press used “yellow journalism” to get the United States to intervene on behalf of Cuba, Americans with business interests in Cuba wanted the United States to protect their business interests by supporting Spain. In the end, the “yellow journalism” tactics worked and the United States went to war with Spain. By the end of the war, Cuba would be an independent nation and the United States would be a new global imperial power. Foreign Policy As a result of the Spanish-American War, the United States gained additional territory in the Pacific and Caribbean. Managing these new territories became the focus of the Progressive Presidents’ foreign policies. Each Progressive President, Roosevelt, Taft, and Wilson, developed different approaches to rule these territories and protect the economic interests of the United States. World War I Industrialized countries had turned to imperialism to gain resources and expand their trade markets. In order to protect their foreign interests, they expanded their militaries and formed alliances. By 1914, tensions throughout the world had escalated and resulted in war. While most citizens in the United States sided with the Allied Powers, the overall push was for the United States to remain neutral. After all, the war was happening “over there.” Instead of taking sides in the war, the United States became the go to country for supplies. Trade with Britain and France increased dramatically, actually resulting in a labor shortage in the United States. But, trade with Europe would have problems as both Britain and Germany established blockades and Germany had begun using U-boats to sink British ships. Eventually, the United States would be drawn into war. Once involved in World War I, the United States government used propaganda to gain support from citizens. Men were encouraged to join the fight and help protect democracy. Those at home rationed goods and bought war bonds. Patriotism was heightened and those that disagreed with the war faced increased government scrutiny. With the help of the United States, the Allied Powers won the war. Post World War I (1) When World War I ended, the United States found itself in a peculiar position. Although the United States was part of the treaty negotiations, there was disagreement between the U.S. government’s executive and legislative branches on the terms of the treaty. The legislature worried the treaty’s harsh punishment of Germany and U.S. involvement in the League of Nations (based on President Wilson’s 14 Points) would end up hurting the United States. In the end, the United States failed to join the League of Nation and shifted its foreign policy to isolationism. In addition to the political disagreements over the Treaty of Versailles, the United States was facing serious domestic issues. With the war over, foreign demand for goods waned. This resulted in an economic recession and labor tensions. The recession and labor tensions, coupled with the rise of communism in Europe, helped ignite a Red Scare. The U.S. government began searching for communists and anarchists in an effort to protect the American way of life. This overwhelming fear of “foreign influence” resulted in a rise of nativism.
