REMAIN NEUTRAL US foreign policy when war began
US GOT INVOLVED IN WWI Submarine Warfare, Sinking of the Lusitania, Zimmerman Telegram, Propaganda, Russian Revolution, & Wilson (To Make the World Safe for Democracy)
SUBMARIN WARFARE Germany did not want the US aiding Britain so they blew up the ships. This violated "Freedom of the Seas" - can't attack a neutral ship. Can only stop and search.
SINKING OF THE LUSITANIA Was a British passenger ship that the Germans torpedo off the coast of Ireland. US was angered because there was 128 Americans on board the ship.
ZIMMERMAN TELEGRAM Germany asked Mexico to attack the US and if they joined the war, the Germans would help Mexico regain lost land. Telegram was intercepted by Britain and the US was angry that Germany tried to get a neutral country to join war against US.
PROPAGANDA The spreading of ideas to help or hurt a cause (a wartime advertisement). This made Americans determined to win the War.
RUSSIAN REVOLUTION Russian dictator was overthrown and this made the US less hesitant to join the Allies.
SAFE FOR DEMOCRACY Woodrow Wilson - He felt that if we didn't stop Germany's actions, most of Europe would no longer be democratic anymore.
