World War 1

American imperialism began in 1898 with the Spanish-American War and Teddy Roosevelt’s policy of ‘police power’ over the Western Hemisphere. These actions seem to have prepared us for the war in Europe. Write an essay on the events leading up to World War I and the events that forced us to join the war. Make sure you include the rote of President Wilson in the war and peace negotiations. Be sure to include the following: Lusitania, Zimmerman Note, Russian Revolution, The Fourteen Points, Treaty of Versailles, War Debts and Reparations. This meets objectives 1-5.
