Why was it so difficult for President Wilson to maintain American neutrality during the Great War? Why did he decide to enter the war when he did?
Talk about Wilson’s pro-British opinion. Talk about our trade relations with the allied powers versus the central powers. Talk about German aggression, the sinking of the Lusitania, the National Defense Act, the Zimmerman telegram. Talk about Wilson wanting to shape the peace, his 14 points, the league of nations. Mention names of people involved.
