Western Europe-The Middle Ages and Crusades

Here we discuss the period following the fall of the Roman Empire in Europe, and before the Renaissance--The Middle Ages! Western Europe changed dramatically entering a period of feudalism when power was based upon control of land.  There was a decline in culture, learning, and ultimately the Crusades as the power of the Church grows.  Following the Crusades, however, a new period of trade and rebirth will  emerge, ending the Middle Ages and leading to the Renaissance.


Imperialism and World War I

The 20th Century brought a period of increased involvement in international affairs for the United States.  A desire for new markets and raw materials began the new foreign policies of the Progressive Era.  Roosevelt's "Big Stick Policy" as well as Taft's "Dollar Diplomacy" resulted in United States involvement in Latin America.  Woodrow Wilson would also continue this trend and eventually bring the United States to it's role in World War I. The results include the Panama Canal, many new territories and the growth of the Unites States as a world power.


Early 1900's-The Progressive Era

 

 It is the dawn of the 20th Century, and a new type of reform movement emerges to deal with the problems resulting from industrialization and the Gilded Age. The Progressive Era presidents, Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and Woodrow Wilson will all address the problems of the country during the early 1900's.
