The Monroe Doctrine was articulated in President
James Monroe's seventh annual message to Congress on December
2, 1823. The European powers, according to Monroe, were obligated
to respect the Western Hemisphere as the United States' sphere
of interest. Any violation with American lands would be considered
the "manifestation of an unfriendly disposition toward the
United States". The Monroe Doctrine has been the bedrock of
the United States' foreign policy since 1823. It has been
endorsed by every President from the time of President Monroe
to the present day. This replica document is in his own handwriting
All documents are reproduced on special fine
paper that have a mottled finish and varied surface similar
to that of the genuine documents of history. The documents
are manufactured from cellulose fibers with sulfuric acid
to enhanced the look and feel of the original. In addition,
they are treated with sulphite pulp so the "old-antiqued"
look is apparent. We offer only high quality replica documents
of US history that look and feel very similar to the real
documents displayed in Museums.
