Transcript of Imperialism and Anti- Imperialism Quotes

Imperialists and anti- imperialists William McKinley Mark Twain Theodore Roosevelt Jane Addams Andrew Carnegie Anti- Imperialist League Alfred T. Mahan "We need Hawaii just much and a good deal more than we did California. It is Manifest Destiny." "I am an anti-imperialist.
