Explain the role of American imperialism in leading the United States into international conflicts in the late 19th and early 20th century. You will select two U.S. conflicts from among the Hawaiian Annexation, the Spanish-American War, War in the Philippines, and World War I.
The United States of America was actively involved in various warfare during the late seventeenth century. The Hawaii annexation is a perfect example of the same. The U.S minister to Hawaii declared Hawaii an independent republic which was a reaction to clamor for nationalism aroused by the Spanish American war. The United States annexed Hawaii again in 1898 at the request of president McKinley. The Spanish American war was also another armed conflict between the two states that signifies the active involvement of America in warfare.
