Proposed by Woodrow Wilson as a part of his 14 points.Was made as a forum for resolving international disputes.He hoped it would create a "new world order".Despite the fact that Wilson created it, the US Senate was dominated by Republicans angered by the fact that Wilson didn't bring any Republicans to the Treaty of Versailles, and did not allow the US to join the League of Nations. The US also didn't join because of their isolationist views.It was in competition with Lenin's 3rd Communist International (Comintern).Did not end up doing much, and was dissolved in 1946. Though it didn't accomplish much, it paved the way to the creation of the United Nations.
