Anit-Imperialism League

Dear diary,
            Today we founded the anti-imperialism league, in New England on the date of June 15,1898. The league is found in New England and was absorbed by a new national anti-imperialist league. A statesman who goes by the name of George S. Boutwell served as the president  of the league in 1898, he hopefully will be a good leader.

Dear diary, 
Today I have joined the Anti-Imperialism league. The point of the Anti-Imperialsim League is a league that is a movement against any form of coloninolism or imperialism. We also oppose to wars of conquest, particularly wars for control of land. We also diasagree with the expansion of any counrty outside of its borders.

Dear diary,

             Today, our humble leader of the Anti-Imperialism league died in the year of 1905. our new leader to be is a lawyer and civil rights activist named Moorfield Storey hopefully he will be as good of leader as our last leader, rest his sole, George S. Boutwell.

Dear diary, 

            Today the Anti-Imperialism league has became only half as strong as it youst to be and is starting to crumble and fall apart. We, the Anti-Imperialism league, did not objective to america’s entry into World War I(though several individual members did opose intervention).

Dear diary,
            I fear that the Anti-Imperialism League is beginning to crumble I feelt that we are breaking apart form each other and we are not working together to solve our problems. I feel that we will eventually sease to exist and the Anti-Imperialsim League will be no more.

 Dear Diary,
            Today is in the year of 1921 and I have bad news, the Anti-Imperialism league has been put to an end we have dispanded from each other and have gone our separate ways.
