Poison gas was used as a weapon in ww1. Armies used this to kill the enemys in the trenches. When gas was thrown the ones being attacked had to put on gas masks, although they didnt work all the time. This left the soldier to suffer for days.
These confrences where held after the signing of the armistice. They where held because it was agreed by everyone that they should get together and make up a way of what would happen now that the war is over. The members of the allied powers however had the most power in these meetings. But in the end it ended up with five treaties.
This was signed at the paris peace conference. It was signed to finally end the Great War.
This is what the Germans and the Allies signed to say cease fire. And after that every one going against the allies stopped fighting the same year.
This was and offensive of the allies. The landscape of the place was great for them and let them have 5 devisions attacking. This ended up hurting Germany a lot.
This started as being the Germans last offensive. But it ended with the victory of the allies. Not only did the Germans see that they had lost this battle but they had also seen that they lost much ground in their deffeat. Many of the commanders for the Germans where already giving up and saying that there was no hope, the war was lost for Germany.
The flu epidemic was said to have had killed many more people than the ones who were killed in WWI. It is said that the people who died in WWI where at a number of about 16 million. But within the flu epidemic the number of estimated deaths was about 50 million. It was a major disaster in world history.
This battle took place because of the Germans advancing so much in one day. They got to 13 miles in one day and where still trying to push further. When America saw this they sent one division of men too Chateau- Thierry to stop the German from advancing anymore. America succeded and this was marked as the second war won by America since entering WWI.
The sedition act said that americans were not to talk bad about the American Government or the army. Because it was disloyal they said. This act was pretty much based off of the Espionage act.
This was the first time the US marines would see battle in WWI. It was said to be the most important battle that was fought by America since the US civil war. This was a response to the offencive of Germany in 1918.
This was President Wilson's way of trying to pin point all the wrongs of the war. In the fourteen points he tries to make it so that war will not break out again and for there to be peace. In these fouteen points he points out many causes and wrongs of the war and tries to tell everyone that this is what should not be done anymore so that therefore there will be no more wars.
This was a note from Germany to Mexico. It was said that the Germans were trying to get mexico to declare war against America. And in return the Germans promissed if they won the war they would give Mexico land. Mexico could not join the war though because they were in a civil war of their own at the time.
In 1917 There were two Russian Revolutions. One was called the February Rev. in that one was when Tsar gave his throne and the Provisional Gov took his place. And the other was called the October Rev. in this one the Gov. was overthrown by the Bolsheviks.
Congress passed this act after the U.S. had entered WWI. It was to punish anyone who did not want to be in the war as a soldier. And about 20 years of being in prison for just interfering in recruiting troops
The selective service act was a draft of soldiers for WW1. It was needed because for when America entered the war it was not prepared and needed way more soldiers than what it had. In a way for the government to get people to sign up they but many posters and signs encoureging the men to register.
America entered the war even after all the effort to stay netural. One huge thing that made the americans enter WWI was the sinking of the lusitania. It was the Germans who were the ones who sunk the ship killing more than 120 Americans. Although many Americans wanted to stay neutral America was preparing for war.
The sussex pledge was germanys way to not have america join the war on the side of the enemy. Germany promissed in the pledge that they would not attack a ship at sea without warning. The pledge though did not really work. The Germans broke their promisse on February 1st. After that they started attacking ships with no warning again.
The lusitania was used to farrie people accross the atlantic. After WWI began the seas were a dangerous place to be on. Captains were always on the look out for u-boats. These where German submarines. When the lusitania was sunk it was a perfect target because it had slowed down due to the fog. This was what caused America to enter WWI.
Archduke and his wife were assassinated in bosnia by student there. That was the second attempt at his life that day. His assassination was a big impact to the begining of ww1.
