James G. Blaine was an American politician who served as 21st President of the United States (1881 -
Я-James G Blaine - Brady-Handy
1889). His administration was the first two term republican administration. He advocated an expansionist foreign policy, annexing Hawaii and Samoa in 1881 and 1883 respectively, and leading America into the Spanish - American war (1885 - 1887) resulting in American territories in Guam, the Philippines and Puerto Rico being gained. The Blaine administration's actions led to a war scare with the Confederate States throughout his second term, particularly during the summer of 1886. He is a controversial figure in modern America, supported by neoconservatives and "hawks" because during his administration the United States became a major power on the world stage, but criticized by "doves" and Native Americans due to the destruction of many native lands during the Indian Wars.
