Joint Address to Congress Leading to a Declaration of War Against Germany (1917)

http://www.ourdocuments.gov/doc.php?doc=61

Rating: 2, High!

Description: When hostilities broke out in Europe in 1914, President Wilson declared America's intent to stay neutral and called on all Americans to remain impartial. Events between 1915 and 1917 led Wilson to change his mind. German submarine warfare had resulted in the sinking of several ships and the loss of American lives. Most remarkable was the attack against the Lusitania, on May 7, 1915, when 128 Americans died. On April 2, 1917, President Woodrow Wilson delivered this address to a joint session of Congress and called for a declaration of war against Germany. The resulting congressional vote brought the United States into World War I.
