Overview: World War I was “the war to end all wars” and began in 1914. However, those words were not used until 1917 by President Woodrow Wilson to describe a war well underway in Europe for three years without U.S. participation. By that time, Germany had committed multiple acts of war against the United States. Nevertheless, President Wilson vowed neutrality all the way until 1917. This DBQ asks whether the United States stayed out of the war in a free exercise of choice, or only delayed the inevitable American involvement in The Great War.
This covers NCSS Themes 1-10, each document is labelled according to which theme it covers.
This includes 8 documents, and questions for each document. I made this during the course of my graduate schooling in education, and it is modeled after the Reading Like a Historian DBQs.
