    This next cartoon is again of Theodore Roosevelt. However, this time he is walking with his famed "Big Stick" while pulling a string of US warships through the Carribean. The Ships are labeled things such as "Tax Collection". These cartoons give instight to the fact that some people were not in favor of US invovlement in the Carribean Islands, and thought that we were there not to protect up and coming democracies, but to make a profit

    This last and final cartoon is again of Theodore Roosevelt. In this rendition, Teddy is riding a US warship through the Panama canal while holding his faithful companion the "Big Stick". A cristicism of US military presence, perhaps?

    This is a political Cartoon. The cartoon is of Theodore Roosevelt (the United States) single handedly digging digging the Panama canal with a shovel. The cartoon shows other peoples under the dirt that Roosevelt is throwing to the side.

    This is a picture of a Mexican Gold mine. Minerals througout Latin America were the prize of Western investment, and Gold mines like these always gave a good return. These Gold mines could have been found all throughout Mexico. Gold was a driving force behined old imperialism, so its only natural that it be a driving force behined new imperialism as well.

    This is a link to a teacher's lesson plan called "The Birth of American Imperialism as seen through the political cartoon" It features 6 wonderful, full page sized politcal cartoons. Just thought that It would be a helpful resource. http://www.oah.org/pubs/magazine/1898/martinez-lesson.pdf
    Moving on. This is a short, amatuer documentary that was shown at the state level in Nebraska National History day competition. Its a recap of the Fillipino Insurrection, also known as the US Phillipine war that resulted in the death of 200,000 Fillipinos and 5,000 Americans. This does well to show that while the Latin American governments might not have minded being economicially dominated by the United States, the Fillipinos certainly did.
