16 END OF THE SPANISH AMERICAN WAR Treaty of Paris was signed as a cease-fire agreement War lasted only 15 weeks Secretary of State John Hay called it “a splendid little war”

17 WHAT HAPPENS WITH CUBA? Spain relinquishes sovereignty over Cuba. Platt Amendment (1901)- –Cuba becomes a protectorate of the U.S.—(we can intervene with military or policy if a third party threatens) –ensured U.S. involvement in Cuban affairs and gave legal standing (in U.S. law) to U.S. claims to certain territories on the island including Guantanamo Bay

25 FOREIGN INFLUENCE IN CHINA China was a vast potential market for American products Weakened by war and foreign intervention, many European countries had colonized in China In 1889, John Hay, U.S. Secretary of State, issued the Open Door Policy which outlined his plan for free trade among nations in China Foreign nations were opening the door to China’s trade

26 BOXER REBELLION European nations dominated China’s cities Resentment arose in the form of secret societies determined to rid China of these “foreign devils” The Boxer’s were a secret group that rioted in 1900, killing and vandalizing all things foreign Foreign Troops were called in to put down this “Boxer Rebellion”

27 AMERICANS PROTECT RIGHTS IN ASIA After the Boxer Rebellion, John Hay again issued a series of Open Door Policies These policies reflected American beliefs: –importance of exports –the right of America to intervene to keep foreign markets open –belief that America’s survival depended on access to foreign markets

31 THE PANAMA CANAL By the early 20 th century, many Americans understood the advantages of a canal through Panama It would greatly reduce travel times for commercial and military ships by providing a short cut between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans “The shortcut”

32 BUILDING THE PANAMA CANAL 1904-1914 The French had already unsuccessfully attempted to build a canal through Panama America first had to help Panama win their independence from Colombia – which it did Construction of the Canal stands as one of the greatest engineering feats of all-time Cost- $380 million Workers– Over 40,000 (5,600 died) Time – Construction took 10 years

33 This view, provided by NASA, shows the thin blue line (canal) cutting across the middle of Panama

34 Almost 1,000,000 ships have passed through the canal, which became sole property of Panama in the year 2000 Allowed the US to make huge economic gains!!
