This chapter describes the liberal critics' distrust of post-Civil War territorial expansion, and their growing concerns about the corruption and intrigue of American party politics. It describes the Gladstonian campaign for Home Rule, which represents American liberal reformers' most important intervention in the public policies of a foreign country. The chapter also treats the liberal critics' opposition to the Philippine–American war as their last collective engagement in national politics.

Keywords:   post-Civil War, territorial expansion, American party politics, Home Rule, liberal reformers, Philippine–American War, national politics
