Newspaper Pictorials: World War I Rotogravures

http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/collections/rotogravures/index.html

Rating: 1, Awesome!

Description: During the World War I era (1914-18), leading newspapers took advantage of a new printing process that dramatically altered their ability to reproduce images. Rotogravure printing was used to create vivid new pictorial sections. Publishers that could afford to invest in the new technology saw sharp increases both in readership and advertising revenue. The images in this collection track American sentiment about the war in Europe and graphically document the people, places, and events important to the war. Events of the war are detailed alongside society news and advertisements touting products of the day, creating a pictorial record of both the war effort and life at home. Standard 10.5.3 11.4.5

Comments: This is part of the American Memory Collection of the Library of Congress

President Woodrow Wilson's 14 Points (1918)

http://www.ourdocuments.gov/doc.php?doc=62

Rating: 2, High!

Description: In a January 8, 1918, address to Congress, President Woodrow Wilson proposed a 14-point program for world peace. These points were later taken as the basis for peace negotiations at the end of the war. Wilson directly addressed what he perceived as the causes for the world war by calling for the abolition of secret treaties, a reduction in armaments, an adjustment in colonial claims in the interests of both native peoples and colonists, and freedom of the seas. Wilson's 14 Points were designed to undermine the Central Powers' will to continue and to inspire the Allies to victory. Wilson's capstone point calling for a world organization that would provide some system of collective security later called the League of Nations. Standards 10.6.1, 11.4.4 and 11.4.6
