March First Movement, American Missionary and the US-Japan negotiations This article deals with the missionary activities during the March first Movement in 1919. While the Missionaries in Korea did not explicitly argue for Korean Independence, they watched the brutal oppression over Koreans by Japanese policemen and sent some letters and reports to English newspapers, Foreign Mission Board, and State Department. At this time Japanese milita published some articles in newspapers saying that missionaries were behind the Korean Movement. It became an international event. The politicians who supported Japanese and the US cooperation, suppressed the Japanese hawkish faction, But with the influx of the News related to Japanese niolence, the Commission on Relations with the Orient of the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America was forced to contact the Japanese authorities as the Federal Council of Protestant Evangelical Missions in Korea did. The Commission on Relations with the Orient got a promise from the Japanese government to introduce some reforms in Korea. Also, the Federal Council of Protestant Evangelical Missions in Korea presented their agenda to incoming governor-general Saito Makoto. But the State Department tried to rein on some missionaries agenda, kike seemingly political activities. The compromise between the Federal Council of the Churches in America and Japanese authorities was not different from that of the Sate Department and the Japanese Government.
