Your state historical museum has just contacted you to create a short informative 3 slide PowerPoint presentation. Your work will be a part of a larger display on United States imperialism at the beginning of the twentieth century. You may select one of the following events as your focus:
* United States annexation of Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico, or the Philippines
* Spanish American War
* US involvement in Cuba (1898-1922)
* The Boxer Rebellion
Your audience is the general public of your community who will be visiting the museum. Your purpose is to engage and educate visitors about one of these events. Remember, your display will be a part of a grand scale exhibit on United States imperialism from 1898 to 1933; it is intended to inform and entertain.
