A.P. U.S. History Notes

As the 19th century came to a close, many voices cried for American expansionism to match the imperialistic ambitions of Europe and Japan.

Eventually, this expansionism translated into conflict, climaxing in 1898 with the Spanish-American War.

James G. Blaine, Pan-Americanism: As Secretary of State, Blaine fostered closer U.S.-Latin American relations and brought about the first Pan-American Congress in order to forge commercial, social, economic, military, and political cooperation among the 21 republics of North, Central, and South America.
