The Monroe Doctrine
President James Monroe enunciated the famous Monroe Doctrine in his address to congress of December 2, 1823. "The American Continents, by the free and independent conditions which they have assumed and maintained, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European powers, and any attempt to interfere with them would be regarded as "the manifestation of an unfriendly disposition towards the United States,” he said. The original manuscript is in the National Archives at Washington.
This difference proceeds from that, which exists in their respective governments, and to the defense of our own, which has been achieved by the loss of so much blood and treasure, and matured by the wisdom of their most enlightened citizens, and under which we have enjoyed unexampled felicity, this whole nation is devoted. We owe it therefore to candor. and to the amicable relations existing between the United States and those powers, to declare that we should consider any attempt on their part to extend their system to any portion of this hemisphere, as dangerous to our peace and safety.
