Now that the United States had experienced a taste of world power in the Spanish-American War, it would dare to engage more directly with the other great powers of Europe in what would be called initially, "The Great War" or World War I.

While watching the video, simply take notes based on the six roles (Aguinaldo, Beveridge, Twain, Mason, Roosevelt, and Page) outlined on the back of the assignment below. Not all the roles will be covered in the film. But you will want to think about why the United States became involved in the Spanish-American War and whether or not it was right to acquire the various remnants of the Spanish empire, including Cuba and the Philippines.
