United States Entry into World War I
In 1915, Germany sunk the Lusitania, a ship carrying 124 American passengers who all died. Following this, Wilson decided to remain uninvolved in the fighting of the war
Germany claimed to have the right to sink any ships sailing to their enemies in a desperate attempt to win the war.
In 1916, Germany promised the US to only torpedo armed merchant ships, rather than passenger ships.
In 1917, a telegram was intercepted. It was sent from Germany to Mexico, and urged Mexico to declare war on the US in return for American land.
No longer able to remain neutral in the conflict, Wilson was forced to step up and declare war in 1917.
