It was what decided what was going to happen to Germany and the other powers now that the war was over. happened 6 months before all fighting stopped. was between the allies and the central powers.
Woodrow Wilson chose to head the U.S. delegation to the peace conference in Paris at the end of World War I. In doing so he became the first president to visit Europe during his term in office. it had a large impact on future alliances and events.
ended the war. Germans suffered many penalties. Germans had to pay for many things and give up A LOT of land.
14 points to end the war. it was also hoped that these points would create a very lasting peace and prevent any more wars. had the first idea of a league of nations which is the precursor to the UN.
A massive destructive force. it killed more than the War, by a whole lot, about 30-40 million more. one of the worst epidemics ever
Massive Allied push. it was one of the final campaigns of the war. it might have been the campaign to end the war, it lasted till the end on november 11.
The Second Battle of the Marne marked the turning of the tide in World War I. it was the final German offensive. It was a major turning point in the War.
The Battle of Château-Thierry of was part of the Allied response to the German Aisne offensive. The Americans reached Château-Thierry on June 1st and held off the final German attacks of the Aisne offensive. The battle of Château Thierry was the second American victory of the war, coming only three days after the first, at Cantigny.
it was the first big German Aisne Offensive move. it was a fight in the woods between the Germans and the U.S. marines. The main German attack was knocked back on June 4 and US forces went on the offense on June 6. it was over in 25 days
made the already unconstitutiounal Espionage Act even more so. expanded it to encompass those who publicly critizized the government. including negative comments about the flag, military or Constitution.
the republican Russia didn't last long. It was taken out by yet another coup. this time by a party known as the bolsheviks, this is where the communist party had it's roots.
the Russians had a dictator in power. they overthrew him and killed him and his family. they put a republican government in his place, and they final stumbleing block that prevented the US from entering with the entente was removed.

basically, the draft. it selected people for enlistment based on health and age. it was NOT voluntary.
A very decisive moment in the war, was when the U.S. joined. It brought fresh, new, and young troops to the field of battle after 3 years of fighting. We joined on the side of the entente, or, the allies.
It was a note sent from Zimmerman, for germany. it was sent to mexico, encourageing the Mexicans to attack the US. It promised a chunk of America to Mexico if they did.
German pledge to give fair warning to all ships before they were sank. The Pledge didn't last very long. It gretly reduced the efficiency of the German subs.
one event that led up the U.S. joining the war. There were some Americans on a british ship and the germans sank it. this angered many Americans
poison gas was used mainly in WWI. the first kind of gas that was used was a basic nerve gas. however later the gases were lethal
the event that realy started the cascade to war. because of alliances.
