Learning Goal: I’m working on a history question and need guidance to help me learn.A major theme in History 131 is to identify the ways in which American democracy has been
promoted or obstructed in the course of U.S. history since the Civil War. The debate over
American Imperialism brings this theme into focus. In the final years of the 19th century (late 1800s), after a few brief campaigns in Cuba and Puerto
Rico brought the Spanish-American War to an end, the American people woke up in possession
of an empire that stretched halfway around the globe. In 1898, the United States acquired Cuba,
Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Philippines. In the same year, the United States annexed the
Hawaiian Islands. These events sparked major debate both in government and among the
American people with respect to American imperialism and its place in democracy. Discussion Forum asks you to apply the concept of Historical Thinking to analyze the
relationship between the history of American imperialism and American democracy. ➢ First, READ closely Chapter 19 of The American Yawp, including the primary sources. https://www.americanyawp.com/reader/19-american-em…➢ Next, EXPLORE some of the “Additional Resources about American Imperialism” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_imperialism
➢ Then, POST to Discussion Forum #2 in response to the following questions: If you had been living in the 1890s, would you have been pro-imperialist? If so,
convince your fellow class members of the merits of imperialism with evidence that
American imperialism expands democracy. If you would have joined the antiimperialists, explain your opposition to imperialism with evidence to show that
imperialism is fundamentally anti-democratic.you are encouraged to be as specific as possible—refer
to concrete places, people, and events—and use the reading as evidence (be sure to quote
from The American Yawp and additional sources to make your case)
