What contribution did alfred t. mahan make to help america become an imperial power

Alfred Thayer Mahan (1840-1914) was an American who studied at the U.S. Naval Academy, served as a Naval Union officer during the Civil War, and became a lecturer and then President at the Naval War College, and a President in North Atlantic Squadron. During his time in the Naval War College, Mahan focused on developing studies about the influence of sea power.

Some of his main writings were The Influence of Sea Power upon History (1890) and The Influence of Sea Power upon the French Revolution and Empire (1892). These publications are mainly known for encouraging the development of navies, especially the American' navy, which was portrayed as an essential element to become an Imperial power.

In his works, Mahad held that the great powers were those that maintained strong navies and merchant marines. He also stated that the primary mission of a navy was to secure the command of the sea to secure one's own ships while denying their use to the enemy and, if necessary, closely supervise neutral trade; and that the crews of those national navies had to be thoroughly trained, and be actively aggressive when defending the nation's interests. He also supported that the production and shipping capacities had to be increased during peacetime and promoted the acquisition of repair and coaling station to the modern navies.

The United States considered that many of Mahan's points were effective for its purpose of becoming an imperial power. Consequently, Americans started to focus more on increasing their overseas possessions, enhancing its building navy plans, providing a more rigorous training for the crew, the acquisition of port facilities throughout the world, among others.

A weakness of Congress under the Articles of Confederation was that it could not A.) conduct diplomacy. B.) print or issue currency. C.) collect taxes. D.) declare war.


The correct answer is C. A weakness of Congress under the Articles of Confederation was that it could not collect taxes.


The Articles of Confederation constituted the first government document of the United States of America. They were approved by the Second Continental Congress on November 15, 1777, after several months of debate. It was a non-binding guideline until its ratification four years later, on March 1, 1781.

The Articles supported the Continental Army and allowed the thirteen states to form a united front before the European powers. However, as a tool to build an effective government in times of war, it was a failure. Congress could make decisions, but did not have the power to apply them. Perhaps, the biggest setback was the requirement of unanimous approval of the 13 States to modify the articles. At the same time, the most important power that Congress lacked was the power to collect taxes: it could only request money from the States. These, for their part, did not always comply with the demands and Congress did not have the necessary funds for its operation.

What offers the BEST reasoning behind william t. sherman's strategy of using "total war " to defeat the south?

The correct answer is C) the destruction of Georgia would be so complete that it would break the Confederacy's will to continue fighting.

The BEST reasoning behind William T. Sherman's strategy of using "total war " to defeat the south was "the destruction of Georgia would be so complete that it would break the Confederacy's will to continue fighting."

That was his goal with the Total War. The Union had to win the war at any cost, so he decided to led his troops in November 1864 from Atlanta to Savanah, Georgia. It was an army of approximately 60,000 soldiers. Sherman wanted to create fear in the people of Georgia, so he and his men steal food and burned crops to force the people to stop supporting the Confederates. With this total war concept, Georgia was completely destroyed and indeed the people from the state were afraid.

The other options of the question were A) the strategy of "total war " was needed to stop the confederates from trading with France and England. B) Sherman's men wanted revenge from the horrifying treatment of Union soldiers in Andersonville prison camp. D) the invasion of Georgia would lead to an armed revolt by the slaves, which in turn would help the Union to win the war.

What are three colonies founded to escape religious persecution in Europe? -Virginia -Maine -Maryland -Massachusetts -New York

The correct options are: Maryland - Massachusetts - Virginia.

In 1607 a group of English settlers built a tiny village in Jamestown, Virginia. Carriers of a card of the daughter of King James I of England, founded the first English colony that survived. A London company interested in obtaining profits financed the foundation, but never obtained them. Of the first 105 settlers, 73 died of hunger and disease in the first seven months after their arrival. But the colony grew and prospered over time. The Virginians discovered the way to earn money with the cultivation of tobacco, which they began shipping to England in 1614.

In New England, the northeastern region of what is now the United States, the English Puritans established several colonies. These colonizers thought that the Church of England had adopted too many practices of Catholicism, and they came to America fleeing persecution in English lands and with the intention of founding a colony based on their own religious ideals. A group of Puritans, known as pilgrims, crossed the Atlantic on a ship called Mayflower and settled in Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1620. A much larger Puritan colony was established in the Boston area in 1630. By 1635, some colonists They were already migrating to nearby Connecticut.

The Pilgrim Fathers (in English, Pilgrim Fathers or only Pilgrims) was an English religious group formed at the end of the 16th century that, being dissatisfied with the political-religious environment in their country, decided to emigrate, first to Leiden (Holland) in 1609 and then to the New World in 1620.

The pilgrims began their journey on August 5, 1620, from the port of Southampton aboard the ship Mayflower, after crossing the North Atlantic arrived at the American coasts of New England in November of that same year in the area where the current city of Provincetown practically in the Cape Cod of Massachusetts. These travelers wanted to settle in the English colony of Jamestown (Virginia) that had been founded in 1607, but navigational errors took them to more northern areas.
