In which John Green teaches you about American involvement in World War I, which at the time was called the Great War. They didn't know there was going to be a second one, though they probably should have guessed, 'cause this one didn't wrap up very neatly. So, the United States stayed out of World War I at first, because Americans were in an isolationist mood in the early 20th century. That didn't last though, as the affronts piled up and drew the US into the war. Spoiler alert: the Lusitania was sunk two years before we joined the war, so that wasn't the sole cause for our jumping in. It was part of it though, as was the Zimmerman telegram, unrestricted submarine warfare, and our affinity for the Brits. You'll learn the war's effects on the home front, some of Woodrow Wilson's XIV Points, and just how the war ended up expanding the power of the government in Americans' lives.

Subbable message!!!: Jared Richardson says, "All true love is beautiful. Support your LGBT community."

Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode. The complex secret alliances of Europe led to a "mad dash to disaster" with the start of World War I. It took several years before Americans sent their troops to the front lines, and the war ended after just over a year of American fighting. After the war, future President Herbert Hoover worked to feed the starving European victims of the war, while President Woodrow Wilson laid out Fourteen Points to prevent a future World War, including a League of Nations established following the Treaty of Versailles.
