In April 1917, the United States entered World War I on the side of the Allies. Previously angered by the sinking of Lusitania, President Woodrow Wilson led the nation to war after learning of the Zimmermann Telegram and Germany's resumption of unrestricted submarine warfare.

Though possessing a massive pool of manpower and resources, the United States required time to mobilize its forces for war. As a result, Britain and France continued to bear the brunt of the fighting in 1917 as their forces took part in the failed Nivelle Offensive as well as the bloody battles at Arras and Passchendaele.

With American forces preparing for combat, Wilson formed a study group in September 1917 to develop the nation's formal war aims. The result was a core list of points which stressed self-determination of peoples, free trade, and open diplomacy that became Wilson's famous Fourteen Points design for peace.

Power point #1 is entitled, World War I - Woodrow Wilson's Fourteen Points for Peace and contains 27 slides and covers the following:

Preparing For War
“The Inquiry” Group
Wilson’s Speech to Congress
The Fourteen Points (14)
Reaction at Home

End of Presentation

In the wake of the November 11, 1918 armistice which ended hostilities on the Western Front, Allied leaders gathered in Paris to begin negotiations over the peace treaties that would formally conclude the war. The talks initially included leaders and representatives from over 30 nations. To this crowd was added a host of journalists and lobbyists from a variety of causes.

Opening in January 1919, the Paris Peace Conference was convened to draft the treaties that would officially end the war. Dominated by David Lloyd George of Britain, Woodrow Wilson of the United States, and Georges Clemenceau of France, the conference re-drew the map of Europe and began to design the postwar world.

Despite the wishes of Wilson, a harsh peace was inflicted on Germany which included a loss of territory, military restrictions, heavy war reparations, and acceptance of sole responsibility for the war. Several of these clauses helped create the circumstance that led to World War II.

The Palmer Raids were a series of raids by the United States Department of Justice intended to capture, arrest and deport radical leftists, especially anarchists, from the United States. They occurred in the larger context of the Red Scare, the term given to fear of and reaction against political radicals in the U.S. in the years immediately following World War I.

The raids and arrests occurred in November 1919 and January 1920 under the leadership of Attorney General Mitchell Palmer. Though more than 500 foreign citizens were deported, including a number of prominent leftist leaders, Palmer's efforts were largely frustrated by officials at the U.S. Department of Labor; they had authority for deportations and objected to Palmer's methods. Once American citizens opposed the raids, they ceased..
