After the war of 1812, their was a time where the U.S. began to think about how they could expand their territory and how they could protect the country from another invasion.
We will do whatever we can to protect this country!
The U.S. realized that if another country took one of the other countries in the Americas, it could lead to the end of the U.S.
We should make something that protects everyone in the Americas!
I, James Monroe, present to you, the Monroe Doctrine!
The Government decided to make the Monroe Doctrine which protected the Countries in the Americas from an invasion.
With the Monroe Doctrine in action, trade within the Americas was increased and wars subsided.
Anyone is allowed to enter, but do not bring your guns!
Word of this doctrine quickly spread among the other countries and they became mad that they couldn't spread their territories to the Americas.
My Lord, the U.S. is attacking any country that invades the Americas.
This is outrageous!
Now with this new doctrine in action, the U.S. could focus more on making factories and increasing trade.
This business has been very successful.
