Germany breaks their promise, and Wilson is forced to ask Congress for a declaration of war on April 2nd, 1917.
Most Americans weren't too keen on fighting overseas, so the Committee on Public Information was created to convince everyone.
To support the war effort, people started (through the encouragement from The Food and Fuel Administration) to plant victory gardens and observe days like Meatless Monday, Heatless Monday, and Gasless Sunday (I know, that sounds like so much fun.)
Meanwhile, all of the troops that were out there fighting were getting hungry, and were running out of things that they could shoot.
So, to feed and arm those troops they made the War Industries Board and the National War Labor Board! It helped keep the soldiers ready to fight, and it made the workers back home happy.
Everyone back in America was getting real suspicious of anyone who said ANYTHING that was anti-war. They passed the Espionage and Sedition Acts, so if you were like John here and said that you weren't about this fighting and tried to convince others, they would toss ya in jail.
