The Treaty of Paris made the Philippines, Guam, and Puerto Rico American possessions. American forces fought a brutal campaign to retain control of Philippines.The US proclaimed an Open Door trade policy with China. The US acquired partial control over Samoa by treaty and by declaring protectorate status. The US annexed Hawaii in 1898.

The real firing line is not in the suburbs of Manila. The foe is of our own household. The attempt of 1861 was to divide the country. That of 1899 is to destroy its fundamental principles and noblest ideals.”- Anti-Imperialist League
