      Which statement best summarizes the effect diseases had on the Spanish-American War? When American troops returned home, diseases caused epidemics throughout the United States. The Spanish-American War marked the first time biological weapons were used in warfare. Diseases shortened the war by forcing the United States to retreat after epidemics spread throughout the army. More American soldiers were killed by diseases such as yellow fever and malaria than were killed in battle. This excerpt is from a campaign speech given by Albert J. Beveridge in September 1898. The speech was entitled "The March of the Flag." "The ocean does not separate us from lands of our duty and desire. . . . Cuba not contiguous! Porto Rico not contiguous! Hawaii and the Philippines not contiguous! The oceans make them contiguous. And our navy will make them contiguous." Source: http://www.historytools.org/sources/beveridge.html Which statement best describes the controversy between imperialists such as Beveridge and anti-imperialists over the terms of the Treaty of Paris of 1899? They disagreed over the annexation of Cuba. They disagreed over the annexation of Hawaii. They disagreed over the acquisition of the Philippines. They disagreed over the purchase of Puerto Rico and Guam.
