Early in 1915, Germany declared the waters around Britain a war zone.The policy of "strict accountability" was soon put to a test. On May 7, 1915, a U- boat sank the Lusitania without a warning. Among the 1, 198 dead were 128 Americans. Wilson sent a protest to Germany to stop but Germany broke that promise later in August 1915. Germany had sank another ship, the Arabic.
Early in the war, the British circulated stories about alleged atrocities committed by German soldiers in Belgium.Lord James Bryce, a well-respected historian, investigated these outrages and reported that German soldiers were torturing innocent women and children. Not only that, but also using them as human shields during combat
Wilson hoped that the Germans would back down, but his hopes were dashed after Arthur Zimmerman suggested that they go into war. He even said that Germany and Mexico should become allies and regain "lost territory in New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona. This note created a sensation in the U.S. and stirred anti-German feeling across the nation.
