This is a 27 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War I - Woodrow Wilson's Fourteen Points for Peace. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
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.
The presentation covers the following:
Preparing For War
“The Inquiry” Group
Wilson’s Speech to Congress
