This paper is concerned with a broad, general defining of the concept of the "White Man's Burden." There is a brief history given leading up to the "White Man's Burden," with emphasis on the Monroe Doctrine. The three composing factors of the "White Man's Burden" are Christianity, Pragmatism, and Manifest Destiny; they are explained in detail and an attempt has been made to show how they form a cohesive unit, and in turn, a foreign policy. This paper has attempted to show the beginning of American foreign policy with the hopes of better understanding our foreign policy in the 1970's.
