Description

This great reading activity for Imperialism in US History features a brief biography of the famous Marine Smedley Butler, who served during the Boxer Rebellion, in Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, Haiti, and in World War I.

The article reviews his incredible bravery in action before detailing his cynical view of American imperialism as described in his book "War is a Racket".

This is a great reading for connecting to modern wars and comparing the views of those opposed to wars because of the influence of big business. It also fits in perfectly with a unit on Imperialism, the Spanish-American War, or World War I.

Both an answer key and editable Google Doc are both included for your convenience.
