HIST 106 1st Edition Lecture 10 Outline of Last Lecture First, we’ll finish up the lecture on American Imperialism. We will try to quickly do the portion of the outline in red: LECTURE OUTLINE FOR AMERICAN IMPERIALISM • “The White Man’s Burden” & Changing Ideas of Empire Hawaii • The Spanish-American War Cuba The Philippines • Policing the Hemisphere “Big Stick” Diplomacy Panama Canal, 1903 Roosevelt Corollary to the Monroe Doctrine Taft and Dollar Diplomacy Wilson and Practical Idealism The Mexican Revolution Then we’ll move on to the lecture on the Great War (and hopefully get through all of the below). Outline of Current Lecture THE GREAT WAR • War in Europe, beginning in 1914 Shaky Alliances & the Catalyst for War Developments in Warfare Trench Warfare combined with New Technology Submarine Warfare The Sinking of the Lusitania • U.S. Neutrality, June 1914-April 1917 Focus on Progressive Reforms at Home Despite American Imperialism, United States still essentially Isolationist Different Reasons for Isolationism Interventionist Minority Preparedness • The United States at War, April 1917-November 1918 The Zimmerman Telegram & the Declaration of War Mobilizing the Home Front Selective Service Act The Committee on Public Information & Other New Federal Agencies Volunteerism Progressives at War Paying for the War U.S. Military Involvement and the Allied Victory • An Uneasy Peace Wilson and the Fourteen Points Legacies of the War Current Lecture Paying for the War U.S. Military Involvement and the Allied Victory • An Uneasy Peace Wilson and the Fourteen Points Legacies of the War THEN, WE’LL GET TO WORK ON THE LECTURE ON POLITICS, CLASS, AND CULTURE IN THE LATE 1910S & 1920S ** I realize this is a long outline. We’re going to be discussing a lot of different things, so I wanted to provide you all as much information as possible on the outline to help you follow along. I’m hoping to get through the entire first section, “The Home Front: At War and After War.” We will most likely need to save the section on “The Roaring Twenties” for next Tuesday. I *think* that even if we need to save that section for next week, we’ll still be able to get through next week’s scheduled lectures.** The Home Front: At War and After War – Wartime Civil Liberties and the Red Scare Espionage and Sedition Acts Creation of Bureau of Investigation (becomes FBI) Eugene V. Debs Schenck v. United States Movement for 100% Americanism Lynching of Robert Prager American Protective League Repression of Radical Labor Groups The Wobblies The Bolshevik Revolution and the Red Scare Strikes, Mail Bombings, and Deportation
