Selective Service Act

In order to raise troops for WW1, the U.S. decided to expand the military through the usage of conscription. The act had forced all men between 21 and 45 to sign up for military service. 2.8 million Americans ended up drafted.

War Industries Board

The War Industries Board was a governmental agency that was primarily in charge of the purchase of war supplies between the War and Navy departments. The board was also in charge of the regulation of production, manufacture, and allocation of wartime goods.

Zimmerman Telegram

During WW1, before the Americans had entered the war, Germany had enacted a preemptive measure against America by the Zimmerman Telegram. The telegram was an offer of an alliance between Germany and Mexico against the U.S. if the U.S. ever entered the war against Germany. American opinion was extremely divided on Germany. Many Americans were against the idea of war, but with the introduction of the telegram, more and more Americans were drawn to the war.

Fourteen Points

Woodrow WIlson's Fourteen Points speech to Congress justified America's entrance in the war to the entire world. It stated that America's rights had been violated and that the world must be safe for democracy. Later in the speech it began detailing his vision for a stable peaceful Europe, Americas, and the rest of the world

Russian Revolution

The Russian Revolution of 1917, overthrew the imperial government and placed Vladimir Lenin in power. It was caused by many things, but WW1 most directly contributed to the revolutions start. Russia soon retreated from the war and ended up having a bloodthirsty civil war.

Committe on Public Info

The Committe on Public Information was the U.S.' very first attempt at a large scale propagana agency. The agency was in charge of providing motivation for the war, which it accomplished very effectively. The agency was also famous for its four minute men, who gave four minute speeches.

U.S. Enters WW1

Due to the many unforgivable acts by Germany, specifically against merchant and civilian ships, Woodrow Wilson began urging Congress to enter WW1. The shift in public opinion had begun in Germany's critical mistake, the sinking of the Lusitania.

The Lusitania

On May 7, 1915, the Lusitania was sunk without warning by a German U-boat killing 1,195 including 123 Americans. The incident solidified not only America's but also the entire world's perception of Germany of one of disdain as this incident had seemingly violated the principles of submarine warfare. The Germans utilized an excuse of the ship carrying around 173 tons of ammunition to justify their actions. America's response was to stay neutral, but the incident would still remain very clear and fresh in American's minds.

Espionage Act

The Espionage Act banned any information with the intent or the belief that it could be used to harm the U.S.This was not limited to but included; obtaining info, recording pictures, or copying descriptions of any information relating to the national defense.

Influenza Pandemic

The Influenza Pandemic infected around 30% of the world's population. In order to keep war efforts at a maximum, the U.S. did not properly educate its popualtion on the dangers and treatments for the virus. Around 675,000 people died in the U.S. but 50 million died worldwide. It killed more U.S. soldiers than fighting did.

Sedition Act

The Sedition Act's purpose was, in a nutshell, to extend the Epsionage Act. It extended the Espionage Act to cover speech and expression of opinion.It was illegal to; Incite disloyalty within the military, use speec or written form that was disloyal to the government, advocate strikes, or support countries the U.S. was at war with.

Meuse-Argonne Offensive

Singlehandedly the largest operation of the AEF (American Expeditionary Forces) in WW1. Over a million U.S. soldiers participated with over 120,000 total casualites. It was intended to advance into German territory and force Germany to surrender. It was successful and lasted all the way until the end of the war.

Treaty of Versailles

The Treaty of Versailles was the peace treaty that ended the state of war completely between Germany and the Allied Powers. This treaty took away Germany's armed forces and its colonies and forced Germany to pay reparations. It was viewed horribly by Germany and ended up being one of the causes for WW2.

League of Nations

Was an international organization that formed due to the ever increasing demand for peace. It deemed aggressive war as a crime against the entirety of humanity and instead sought to seek peaceful solutions to problems. It was somewhat effective but ultimately failed to prevent the outbreak of war, thus resulting in WW2.
