SPANISH-AMERICAN WAR 2
Spanish-American War
The Spanish-American war played a major role in making America a world power. The
short-lived and in-expensive war in relation to human life and resources was a turning point in
the history of the two countries. Even though it was disastrous to Spain, remarkable renaissance
followed its conclusion. Through the war, America was able to capture and gain possession of
the Caribbean, the Pacific stretch including Hawaii (Rockoff, 2012). Even though economic
motives towards Cuba played a role in starting the war, they were present in building peace.
America winning of the war in the Caribbean, Far East and the ocean between brought to
an end the tentative quest for a guarantee of access to overseas. It encouraged enthusiasm for the
American navy, which grew from to second place in the world’s war fleets. The war prompted
drastic reforms in the American army, which was not ready for war as a result lost many men to
disease and exposure than to weapons of the enemy. The war also advanced the career of
Theodore Roosevelt as a president (Smith, 2014).
Within a few years of the end of the war, some other notable changes took place. One of

politics within the Far East with initiates such as open door policy and was preparing itself to
take part in playing a determining role in Europe's affairs.
