Within this writing I provide a summary of points of interests within this chapter 11 of the book entitled “EL NORTE.” II was particularly interested in the events that led to the Cuban-Spanish war, and that even as war took place the United States was not able to acquire Cuba. The U.S. continued to gain territory with wars. President Roosevelt became philosophical about the act of war. The claiming of territory was known as American Imperialism.
Within this writing I summarize Chapter 9 of my reading from the book entitled “ELNORTE.” I make historical and present day connections, especially to focus upon the Texas cotton industry, the Texas Annexation and the Mexico-America war.
