What are reasons for American imperialism?

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Economic factors.  The US wanted to take an empire to give it new markets in which to sell goods and from which to buy raw materials.

Military factors.  This was the time of Alfred Thayer Mahan’s ideas about the dominant role of naval power.  The US felt that taking an empire would give it more naval bases from which to project power.  This would allow the  US to become a more important power.

Cultural factors.  Many Americans believed in the idea of the “white man’s burden.”  They felt that they needed to go out and help to civilize the rest of the world.

The Reconstruction Act of 1867: divided all Confederate states into five military districts gave the Confederate states money to rebuild after the war freed all Civil War prisoners freed all slaves

Answers

The right answer is : divided all Confederate states into five military districts.

All southern states, but Tennessee, were divided into five military districts, and the commanding officer of each was empowered to keep order and protect the “rights of persons and property.” The act also worked as a method of creating new constitutions. Those constitutions had to guarantee the right of African American males to vote and were constructed by representatives elected by male citizens aged 21 and older.

Assuming that this is a multiple choice question - it's hard to tell because there aren't any commas - The Reconstruction Act of 1867 divided all Confederate states into five military districts.
