Roosevelt added what became known as the Roosevelt Corollary to the Monroe Doctrine. This stated that it was the responsibility of the United States to intervene in South America in the event of instability.

Booker T Washington Bust

Washington was among the premier of black activists. Washington's views "racial uplift" for the masses are criticized by many today as more conciliatory than in the definite interests of blacks in America. Dubois horribly disagreed with many of Washington's opinions, but also garnered a respect for him as one of the first true black intellectuals who tried to help the black race. Negroes must insist continually, in season and out of season, that voting is necessary to modern manhood, that color discrimination is barbarism, and that black boys need education as well as white boys." Washington and DuBois would continue to debate and be rivals til Washington's death in 1915.

Nanking Bell

By 1900 the Boxer Rebellion had spread to the capital of Beijing, forcing the many Western diplomats and Christians in the city to seek refuge inside their embassies and Churches. The Boxer Rebellion formed in response to both foreign and domestic internal tensions. Western powers like the US and the nations of Europe had come to wield significant commercial, political, and religious influence across China. After losing a number of battles to Britain in particular, China had been forced to concede trading rights to European and US commercial interests and to allow Christian missionaries access across China.

1700 Spanish Cannons

Panama was seeking independence from Columbia and the US agreed to support them in exchange for a strip of land five miles wide across the Isthmus, in perpetuity, to build a canal. Panama agreed to the deal because they were desparate for our help. The US has benefited from the Panama Canal, which makes it possible to travel from one side of the US to the other (by ship) without having to go around the southern tip of South America, which makes the trip tremendously shorter, faster, and less expensive.
