The paper discusses how the Foraker Act was introduced in Congress in early 1900 by Ohio Senator Joseph B. Foraker and was one of the results of the outbreak of the Spanish-American War in 1898, which led to American land and naval victories over Spain and the acquisition of Spanish colonial territory in the Philippines and the Caribbean. The paper explains how these colonial possessions were formally ceded by the Spanish government to the United States government in the peace treaty that concluded the war.
