Spanish-American War 
Project Ideas

The Spanish-American War redefined the United States on the eve of the 20th Century.  There are many topical ideas for study.  Below are some suggestions:

 
  • Compare and contrast the events that catapulted the United States into the Spanish-American War (sinking of the Maine) and events that led to World War II, or perhaps even the current war against terrorism.

 

  • Compare and contrast the role of the media in the Spanish-American War to the role of the Media in World War II, Vietnam, or even the current war against terrorism.  How did the role of the media change as a result of the Spanish-American War.

 

  • Compare and contrast the Marine landing at Guantanamo Bay with the Marine landing at Guadalcanal in WWII.  
    • Compare the leadership (Lieutenant Colonel Huntington and General Alexander Vandegrift).  
    • What impact did either or both of these events have on the development of the Marine Corps.

     

  • Compare and contrast the military leaders of the Spanish-American War with those of World War II.

 

  • Compare and contrast the resulting Philippine Insurrection with the war in Vietnam.  What impact did preceding wars have on either or both of them.

 

  • Compare and contrast the post-war treatment of Spanish-American War veterans with the veterans of other wars, in particular WWII and Vietnam.  What lessons can be learned from this?
