Monroe Doctrin

  1. 1. The Monroe Doctrine By: Hunter
  2. 2. The Monroe Doctrine <ul><li>Was put into effect on December 2, 1823 </li></ul><ul><li>Was written by John Quincy Adams. </li></ul><ul><li>President James Monroe first stated the doctrine during his seventh annual state of the union address to congress. </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Monroe Doctrine <ul><li>Declared that the Western hemisphere was no longer up for colonization to the European Countries across the ocean. </li></ul><ul><li>Many Latin Countries were beginning to get their independence and they believed that It was best to allow these free countries as well as our own to be successful by ourselves and go by our own new ways of life without European interference. </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Monroe Doctrine <ul><li>The Monroe Doctrine also stated that further efforts by European governments to colonize land or interfere with states in the Americas would be viewed by the United States of America as acts of aggression requiring US retaliation. </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Monroe Doctrine <ul><li>Its main purpose was to keep the newly free Latin America states from being overtaken by other European powers. </li></ul><ul><li>The idea was to keep the new world and old world completely separate because their ideology was different and the new world did not want further European influence around them. </li></ul>
  6. 6. The Monroe Doctrine <ul><li>John Crow, The author of The Epic of Latin America , said that the Monroe Doctrine in itself would not have succeeded in anything other than moral boost. The American President at the time was a position of very little power world wide. He did not have the military strength to back up his doctrine. Without the agreement of Britain to allow this to pass it never would have succeeded. Britain was to busy trying to control other parts of the world such as Africa and did not need another distraction. Britain figured that their Africa trade was worth much more to them than their tradings with the Americas. </li></ul>
