League Of Nations

WhenThe League of Nations was created on June 19, 1919 and instituted on January 10, 1920 by The United States President Woodrow Wilson.It was created in Geneva, Switzerland.

Europe was supposed to be the civilized part of the world, but after seeing World War I, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson questioned that. Through seeing the terror of the war he wanted to create an international organization that would prevent war from that point on.

Why?

Primary Source"...Contrast the United States with any country on the face of the earth today and ask yourself whether the situation of the United States is not the best to be found. I will go as far as anyone in world service, but the first step to world service is the maintenance of the United States.I have always loved one flag and I cannot share that devotion [with] a mongrel banner created for a League." - Henry Cabot Lodge on the Leage of Nations adressed to President Woodrow Wilson on August 12, 1919.
