2. The US has always had a complex relationship to imperialism, being at once a country forged through independence from a colonial power, and on the other hand, it has arguably pursued its own imperialist foreign policy. Name and describe specific events from the end of the American Revolutionary War (1783) to the end of the 19th century, and explain how these events clarify whether the US is an imperial or anti- imperial power.
