In 1896 Filipinos began fighting for their independence from Spain and expected the United States would help them. Instead, the United States bought the Philippines from Spain and ignored any talk of autonomy. Fighting erupted soon afterward between U.S. And Filipino revolutionary forces on 4th February 1899 and quickly escalated when the First Philippine Republic declared its independence on the 2 June 1899. Just over a century after their own revolution, Americans now found themselves on the other side attempting to crush a colonial rebellion. The United States fared better than the British Empire and the war officially ended on 2 July 1902 with an American victory. A low-intensity guerilla war would continue for the rest of the decade.

In 1902 the U.S. Congress passed the Philippine Organic Act that granted Filipinos very limited self-government. It was not until 14 years later, with the passage of the 1916 Philippine Autonomy Act (“Jones Act”) that the United States promised eventual independence to the Philipines. In 1934 the Philippine Independence Act created the Commonwealth of the Philippines with full independence to be granted in 1944. WW2 prevented this and finally, in 1946 the Treaty of Manila granted independence.

In the decade immediately after the annexation of the Philipines, there was opposition from many prominent Americans. Notably, William Jennings Bryan, Mark Twain, Andrew Carnegie, Ernest Crosby, and other members of the American Anti-Imperialist League, strongly objected to the annexation of the Philippines. Anti-imperialist movements claimed that the United States had become a colonial power by replacing Spain as the colonial power in the Philippines.

Other anti-imperialists opposed annexation on racist grounds. Among these was Senator Benjamin Tillman of South Carolina, who feared that annexation of the Philippines would lead to an influx of nonwhite immigrants into the United States.

As news of atrocities committed in subduing the Philippines arrived in the United States, popular support for the war disappeared and ordinary Americans began questioning America’s imperial expansion.

Instructions:

It is 1901 and you are a member of the Anti-Imperialist League. You believe that the Philippine-American War is unjust, immoral, and undermines core American values. The executive committee of the League has asked its members to publically oppose the War and explain to the American public why the annexation of the Philipines in unAmerican. You need to decide what arguments you want to make and how you will present them. Members of the League used everything from song lyrics to satirical cartoons to oppose the war.
