Description: Written in a lively style, When the Eagle Screamed argues that America's expansionism between 1800 and 1860 positioned it against some of the world's most powerful and aggressive nations. As the United States moved onto the world scene in this age of Manifest Destiny, it clashed with Britain, France, Russia, Spain, and Mexico. The struggle for Texas and Oregon, the war with Mexico, the postwar adventures and skirmishes in the Caribbean, the penetration of South America and the Far East, the competition for Antarctica and the South Sea Islands, and the drawing of the great Pacific border at Hawaii -- all, William Goetzmann argues, arose from romantic ideals of grandeur and destiny. For this edition the author provides a new preface and updated bibliography.
