Transcript of The Monroe Doctrine

DOCTRINE By Lauren Shepard The Doctrine Effects of The
Monroe Doctrine * James Monroe's Doctrine had both immediate and long-term effects after being announced in 1823. * The immediate impact that the Doctrine had was that it stopped European interference with America. * The Monroe Doctrine has been used multiple other times to fight off European countries. * Monroe made 3 basic points:

1. The United States would not interfere in the internal affairs of or the wars between European powers.
2. The United States recognized and would not interfere with existing colonies and dependencies in the Western Hemisphere.
3. The Western Hemisphere was closed to future colonization. * Monroe warned European countries not to interfere in the Western Hemisphere. * Monroe stated, "the American continents...are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for any future colonization by any European powers." * The Monroe Doctrine was declared during President James Monroe's seventh annual message to Congress on December 2, 1823. * On October 17, 1823, President James Monroe sent a letter to Thomas Jefferson seeking advice on foreign policy. * Monroe decided to pursue a course independent of Great Britain. * The issue at hand was whether or not to accept an offer from Great Britain to issue a joint declaration warning other powers not to intervene in the affairs of Central and South America. Advice On Foreign policies * Jefferson recommended cooperation with Britain. * Monroe's secretary of state, John Quincy Adams, argued for an independent denunciation of any further European colonization in the Western hemisphere. * An example of a long-term impact is that during the Civil War, the Monroe Doctrine was used by the North to ward off any European powers that wanted to side with the South. * Due to it being used multiple times, the Monroe Doctrine can be considered the cornerstone of the United States foreign policy.
