3.01 U.S. History
Miranda Butterfield
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.

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 annexes Hawaii in 1900.
The United States declines to give aid to Hungarian patriots in 1849.
The United States proposes the Open Door Policy in 1899.
The United States annexes Samoa in 1899.
The United States attempts to mediate in the Venezuela-Great Britain dispute in 1895.
In 1875, the United States and Hawaii agreed to give the United States favored-nation status. This allowed Hawaiian sugar to be imported to the United States without tariffs. In 1887, the United States pressured the Hawaiian government to allow the United States to establish a naval base at Pearl Harbor in exchange for renewing this agreement. Not only does this happen, the American Hawaiian people, actually the Sugar Cane Growers, clashed with the native government under Queen Liliuokalani. The U.S then declares that the Hawaiian Islands are U.S Territory.

I believe this is a source of Imperialism . The U.S created agreements with the Hawaiian Islands they started to takeover the sugar plantations and also made a naval base. So in a way we kind of already owned Hawaii. When the American Hawaiians started protesting against the Queen the U.S saw an opportunity and took it.
The United States annexes Hawaii in 1900.
The U.S refused to give aid to the Hungarian patriots because we were focused on expanding into the western territories. We wanted our country to start in the east and reach to the west. Atlantic to Pacific, sea to shining sea. We were following the Manifest Destiny.

This was the U.S practicing isolationism. This is where the U.S refrained from the involvement in Global Affairs.
The United States declines to give aid to Hungarian patriots in 1849.
After a 509-ounce gold nugget was found in the disputed territory of Venezuela - Great Britain tensions rose. Both countries claimed the gold was discovered in their territory. Eager to enforce the Monroe Doctrine and to keep Britain from gaining more land in the Western Hemisphere, President Grover Cleveland attempted to intervene.The United States would enforce the Monroe Doctrine.
The monroe doctrine states that the Western Hemisphere was off limits to any European intervention, but to be honest the U.S intervened more than Europe.
The United States attempts to mediate in the Venezuela-Great Britain dispute in 1895
