3.01 Isolationism, Intervention, and Imperialism
Instructions
In this lesson, you learned how the U.S. began to turn from isolation to imperialism.

Complete the following written assignment to show your understanding of these changes.
Directions
Select three events from the list of five given below - one showing
isolationism
, one showing
intervention
, and one showing
imperialism
. Using complete sentences, write one paragraph describing the event and explaining whether it should be categorized as isolationism, intervention, or imperialism. In a second paragraph, explain the reason for the U.S course of action in each event.

• The United States declines to give aid to Hungarian patriots in 1849.
• The United States attempts to mediate in the Venezuela-Great Britain dispute in 1895.
• The United States proposes the Open Door Policy in 1899.
• The United States annexes Samoa in 1899.
• The United States annexes Hawaii in 1900.

Isolationism vs. Intervention vs. Imperialism
Isolationism
One great example of isolationism, which is the policy that tries to refrain from any involvement with global affairs, would be when the
United States of America refused to give any assistance to the Hungarian patriots in 1849.
The United States basically just wanted to use a seclusion, which a way to way an isolation or isolationism, strategy that stopped functioning with additional countries. The United States of America did not actually assist with any of the Hungarians, which was during their own battle for liberation. However, the United States of America actually disregarded the isolationism when the U.S. aided the leaders of Hungary to be released from jail, but other than that they have helped out only once.
Intervention
One unique example of intervention, which is the participation or engrossment of external supremacies from a nation or other nations that can result in sturdier authorities, can be when the United States of America was attempting to arbitrate, which means to reach an authoritative judgment or convincing defrayal, in the Venezuela-Great Britain dispute back in 1895. The United States of America was attempting to arbitrate in the Venezuela-Great Britain dispute was an event that was first caused by both Venezuela and Britain since they were both having a disparity, which means a great difference, on whose gold it was. The fifth President of the Unites States, James Monroe, created the Monroe Doctrine, which was a message which states that Great Britain, but basically the European powers in general, can’t touch or interfere with anything about the Western Hemisphere, on December 2nd, 1823. The United States of America actually thought of an idea to find a solution between the Great Britain and Venezuela because this could actually affect neighboring countries in the future.
Imperialism
An example of imperialism, which is the policy of creating colonies in weaker nations in order to generate raw materials and have access to new markets, would have to be when the Unites States of America annexes, which means to append or add as an extra or subordinate part, especially to a document, Hawaii back in 1900 because Hawaii, which didn’t become the 50th and last U.S. state until August 21st of 1959, is actually nothing but an archipelago, which is a group of islands, and the United States made the idea to go and take over Hawaii, and added them as a state, and like I already said which wasn’t until August 21st of 1959. The United States made the decision to take over Hawaii mainly because Hawaii was, in fact, the main producer of sugar. However, the United States also wanted the economy as well as surpassing the government.
