Still image from Becoming a Modern Nation

What conditions led to America becoming a world power and, to some, losing sight of her ideals? Less than 30 years after the Civil War, between 1898-1918, two other wars changed the role of the United States as a world power. Explores the events and significance of the Spanish-American War and World War I. Old footage and photos reinforce this succinct recounting of conflicts that changed history. Divided into four parts with discussion questions.
