Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses Henry Watterson's change of position on Cuba, the totality of which was matched only by the reversal of his opposition to Hawaiian annexation. Both changes reflected his mutable responses to new political conditions, and more importantly, revealed his evolving approach to America's position in the world. Watterson also became a vocal and important member of the chorus that urged American action, expansionism, and internationalism.

Keywords: Henry Watterson; Cuba; Hawaiian annexation; political conditions; American action; expansionism; internationalism; changes
