Age of Imperialism was relatively short-lived,
and somewhat anomalous in terms of overall US
history. For a few brief years in the 1890s, the
US aggressively pursued overseas colonies,
holding on to those colonies even in the face of
indigenous resistance and, unlike its handling of
continental territories, offering the new
colonies no pathway toward equal statehood and
citizenship. The Filipino Insurrection of 1899 to
1902 provides a particularly unsettling episode
in terms of how Americans generally like to
remember their past. Having driven the Spanish
out of the Philippines, the US ignored the
Filipinos demand for independence, for which
they had been fighting against the Spanish for
several years, and instead took possession of the
islands, treating the Filipinos as colonial
subjects. For several years, Americans and
Filipinos fought over the destiny of the
Philippines in a brutal conflict which cost the
lives of hundreds of thousandsperhaps even more
than a millionFilipino civilians.

Drawing from material in the textbook and the
video below, explain how American foreign policy
generally grew more interventionist and
aggressive from the 1890s into the twentieth
century, identifying key moments in that
development. Then, examine the specifics of the
Filipino Insurrection, explaining how the
conflict was perceived in the United States.
Using at least three primary sourcesarticles
written during the conflictsummarize the
arguments which Americans of the time made for
and against the colonization of the Philippines.
Also, review one scholarly secondary article
about the insurrection. Summarize its contents
and explain how its depiction of the insurrection
compares with what you read in the primary
sources.All outside sources for this assignment,
primary and secondary, need to come from JSTOR, a
database available through the Ashford University
Online Library. Before beginning your research
into JSTOR, review the video from Week One about
the differences between primary and secondary
sources, and how to find both on JSTORa. JSTOR
