Woodrow Wilson



Early in 1917, Germany declared that they are braking their pledge to the U.S. and are going to begin to practice unrestricted sumbarine warfare. This, coupled with the Zimmerman telegraph, were the reasons behind Wilson's decleration of war against the Axis Powers.


He was liked very much as Governor, causing him to be known nation-wide.



Elected as Governmor of New Jersey in 1910. While he held this position, he introduced workers compensation.


Woodrow Wilson

1918 - 1921

Promoted to President of Princeton

First position that required a fair amount of responisibility. Got his name "out there" and helped lead him into his political career.

Only a short two years later, Wilson ran for President and, due to his popularity throughout the nation gained as Governor, he won!

When World War I ended in Nov. of 1918, Woodrow Wilson brought forward a written statement describing what should be done post war to help inhibit future conflicts. This was called the Fourteen Points, one of the things most well known about Wilson.

During this time period, Wilson was attempting to keep the U.S. out of the war in Europe. He offered to act as a mediator but neither the Allied or Central Powers took him seriously.

And yes, he did win the election of 1916!

Sinking of the Lucitania in 1915 by a German U-Boat with American Citizens (and ammunition) on board.

Wilson got pressure from citizens to retaliate after this act of aggression, but his neutrality position did not change... yet.

The Zimmerman telegraph was a message sent from Germany to Mexico, proposing an alliance in promise of returning New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona after victory.

The U.S. had made a declaration of neutrality in 1914. Wilson warned citizens not to take sides in the war for fear of endangering wider U.S. policy.

Also, in 1920, Wilson begrudgingly signed the 19th amendment, allowing women to vote!
