Project #70945 - History 4

Make sure that you address all parts of the question.

1.  In 1911, Theodore Roosevelt supported his actions in Panama when he said bluntly, "I took the Isthmus, started the canal, and then left Congress not to debate the Canal, but to debate me...." (Links to an external site.).

Colombia issued a statement of grievances in which their objections to Roosevelt's actions were spelled out. Roosevelt responded with "Roosevelt's Case for Supporting the Panamanian Revolution, 1903" and the "Roosevelt Corollary, 1904." Read the reproduction of these documents in Chapter 20 of the Documents Collection.

  1. Look up sovereignty and imperialism at yourdictionary.com (Links to an external site.). With the reading from the Documents Collection in mind, write down the definition of each term in your own words.
  2. What rationale does Theodore Roosevelt use to build his case for Panama in "Roosevelt's Case for Supporting the Panamanian Revolution, 1903" and the "Roosevelt Corollary, 1904?" Answer in three to four complete sentences.
  3. Study " TR and Colombia (Links to an external site.)" at the PBS Online site. What are the messages implicit in the cartoon? How does Theodore Roosevelt use similar messages in "Roosevelt's Case for Supporting the Panamanian Revolution, 1903" and "The Roosevelt Corollary, 1904"? Answer in one or two well-formed paragraphs.
  4. In 1977, Republican Senator S. I. Hayakawa said of the Panama Canal Zone, "We stole it [from Colombia] fair and square." Consider again Theodore Roosevelt's "I took the Isthmus" statement. From your perspective, do these quotes represent accurate assessments of the events surrounding the United States' acquisition of the Panama Canal Zone? Why or why not? Support your argument with evidence from the textbook and the documents. Answer in one or two well-formed paragraphs.

Note: It is possible that Theodore Roosevelt actually said "I took a trip to the Isthmus" instead of "I took the Isthmus." Would that alteration in the wording change your assessment of Roosevelt's actions in Panama?

2. In the 1906 meatpacking controversy, how did the reflection of Americans as consumers drive the movement for progressive reform? In what ways did Upton Sinclair's writing in The Jungle place his novel in the tradition of muckraking journalism? What steps did Theodore Roosevelt take to deal with the controversy? How did his approach fit in with the rest of his regulatory program? Your answers must reflect a knowledge of the reading in American Passages and the excerpt from the book in Chapter 20 of the Documents Collection.

3.
 American Passages states that "Women were the crucial foot soldiers of progressive reform; they were responsible for the success of these campaigns" ("Women and Progressive Reform" in Chapter 20).

Go to Women and Social Movements in the United States, 1775-1940 (Links to an external site.). Select a movement.

In a well-written essay, discuss how the movement you have chosen reflects specific goals of progressive reform and, if appropriate, the goals of other important reform movements. (For example, the Shirtwaist Strike incorporated the goals not only of progressive reform but also of the labor movement and the women's movement.) To further illustrate how your chosen movement reflects goals of progressive reform and other important reforms, select and relate at least two documents from the list provided at the Web site. Make sure that you cite correctly all the sources you use.

Your essay should be at 500 words in length, complete with introduction and thesis statement (your argument), body, and conclusion.
