World War l began in 1914, but the United States, hoping to remain neutral, did not join the war until 1917. Public opinion in America would be swayed when 159 Americans were killed aboard the passenger liner, Lusitania, after it was torpedoed and sunk by a German U-Boat off the coast of Ireland. The final straw took place with the interception of the Zimmerman Telegram - a coded message that the German government sent to Mexico promising the Mexicans U.S. territories in exchange for joining them and invading the United States. In April of 1917, President Wilson requested a declaration of war from Congress which was passed on April 6th. The U.S. Army, known as the American Expeditionary Force, was led by General John J. Pershing. The United States quickly mobilized for war and built up an army and navy and a spirit of nationalism spread through the country. The arrival of the United States would turn the tide of the war in favor of the Allies and eventually defeat Germany in 1918.
Included in this set are images of President Woodrow Wilson and General John Pershing; a "nationalism" banner; a German U-Boat and the sinking Lusitania; a copy of the Zimmerman Telegram; a newspaper headline declaring "war"; a U.S. battleship being built in dry dock; an American campaign hat; an American nurse, and a U.S. soldier known as a "Doughboy."
