The Monroe Doctrine
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     One of the many jobs that the President of the United States does is to make a yearly speech to Congress. In this speech, the president talks about important current events.
 
2     In 1823, President James Monroe was in his second term as president. He had made six of these yearly speeches so far. This year he would be making his seventh one. He would address a joint session of Congress, which means that it would be a meeting of both the Senate and the House of Representatives.
 
3     This year, President Monroe wanted to talk to Congress about issues that involved the rest of the countries of the North and South American continents. New independent countries had recently formed in South America from the Spanish settlements there. At the same time, European countries were still interested in controlling colonies in both North and South America.
