Ch. 23 World War I
Last Chapter
Ch. 22- American as a World Power
Is about:
Years: 1914-1918

Location: Europe (Mainly France)
In his farewell address in 1797, George Washington cautioned his fellow Americans to "avoid foreign entanglements," and for a full century thereafter, the nation did just that.

1) In your notes in three sentences, explain how America went against Washington's warning and became a world power in our last chapter of study.
Lesson Opener
Allied Powers
"Triple Entente"
Central Powers
"Triple Alliance"

Later on: Italy -1915
United States -1917
Germany, Austria- Hungary, Ottoman Empire
=to build up strong forces to prepare for war- symbol of strength

= friendships between nations to protect one another

= when one stronger country takes over another

=extreme pride in nations encouraged

June 28, 1914
After Austria-Hungary annexed an area of land that had belonged to the Slavs, Serbia reacted.

Machine Guns
Poisonous Gas
What new technologies were used in warfare in World War I?
The Telegraph and Carrier Pigeons
Trench Warfare
Question 2
Answer the following questions in your notes:

1. What were the two names of the sides during WW1?

2. What were the four MAIN causes of WW1?
- is defending a position by fighting from the protection of deep ditches
-soldiers ate, slept, and fought from a network of miles of dug trenches for months at a time

- a high powered rifle that would require a gun crew of 2-4 people created by Hiram Maxim
could fire 400 to 600 rounds per minute (equal to about 80 soldiers w/ rifles)

- Tanks were used later in the war (late 1916 early 1917) and were largely used to break enemy lines/ run through barbed wire
bullet proof
used to forge enemy lines
soldiers used them as protection/walked behind them
First used by the French, then developed by Germans, usually chlorine, fired upon soldiers in the trenches.

Later on Phosgene and Mustard gas were used.
-Considered "uncivilized" prior to WWI
-hand held bombs usually detonated by impact or timed
-largely used in trench warfare

-bombing "parties" consisted of 7-9 men and would attack a trench by first throwing a grenade
-telegraph invented by Samuel Morse, is a major way countries communicated during the war
-Man made communication was often unreliable
Airplanes were mostly used for spying in WW1.

-barbed wire was used to slow down infantries
-One strategy of England was to try and "starve" Germany into surrender by "Blockading" trade ships

-land mines were the most feared weapon you would lose limbs

Increased Industrialization and new technology=

Chemical Warfare
Machine Guns
Question 3
What events challenged the United States neutrality and caused the US to enter the war?
Sinking of the Lusitania
Sinking of the Sussex
Woodrow Wilson declares that US will remain "neutral"
1. It was largely seen as a "European Conflict"

Therefore America continues to trade and make money off of both sides
Unrestricted Submarine Warfare
British try to blockade ships from
trading with Germany
and stop trade ships as well as food ships.

In May 1915, a German U-boat
torpedoes a British passenger ship, the Lusitania, killing 1200 people
, including 128 Americans.
In March 1916, another passenger boat is sunk- the Sussex, a French Ship.

80 casualties are American.
Germany agrees to stop attacking "non-military ships."
Zimmerman Note
Germans needed
to keep the US out of the war in Europe.

April 6, 1917
Question 4
What steps did the United States taken to mobilize for war?
4 M's
Men and Women
en and Women
= men were needed as soldiers to fight in the war.
= money for supplies and troops were needed to fight
=weapons and food were needed for soldiers
=people needed to be influenced to support the war
Solution to the need for soldiers=

Selective Service Act of 1917
required all males between the ages of 21 and 30 to register for the draft. Accounted for 3 million men to be drafted into war, including African Americans.
Women and War-
over 30,000 women volunteered as nurses and worked other jobs near the front lines.

They were not included in the draft.
Labor Shortage (Effect)
Millions of men in the military caused a
labor shortage
. Workers were needed in factories to make supplies.
Factory owners turned to:
1) Women
2) African Americans
Congress raised taxes and encouraged the buying of
war bonds= bonds purchased that could later be cashed in for a return on your money
(basically a loan to the gov't).
National War Labor Board:

Was created to head the production of tanks, weapons,
planes, leather for uniform.
Food Administration:
Herbert Hoover was chosen to head the FA.

Goal: to ensure adequate food and supplies for soldiers.
Effect: "Meatless Mondays" "Wheatless Wednesdays"
Victory Gardens

Goal 2: Obedience

"Liberty Bonds"
these efforts
helped finance the war by raising 21 billion dollars.
Schenck v United States 1918:

Do Now:

Answer the following questions in your notes:
1. What do you think it means when a country "mobilizes for war?"

2. What must a country do to "mobilize" for war?
FOF: Pick a number and a color.

2. Name one technological advance of the WWI era and what it was used for.

3. Name one event that threatened US neutrality and made us enter the war.
Question 5
What were the major battles of WW1?
First Battle of Marne
Battle of Tannenberg
Battle of Verdun
Battle of the Somme
Battle of Jutland
Second Battle of the Marne
2nd Marne
Western Front
Eastern Front
Two "Fronts" of the War
September 5- 12, 1914
Marne River, France (Western Front**)
French and British Expeditionary Forces vs. Germans

Allied Victory against the German Army
This battle effectively ended the month long German offensive that opened the war and had reached the outskirts of Paris

British and French armies forced the German army to abandon its push on Paris and retreat, setting the stage for four years of trench warfare on the Western Front
August 26-30, 1914
East Prussia (Modern day Poland) Eastern Front
Russian First and Second Armies vs. Germany Eighth Army
Central Victory
Russia's worst defeat in WW1, Russian army never fully recovered from this battle
February 21- December 18, 1916
Northeastern France, Western Front
German General Von Falkenhayn wanted to make "France bleed" by attacking a narrow stretch of land that had historic sentiment to the French- Verdun
Verdun resulted in 698,000 battlefield deaths ( 363k French, 336k German), and average of 70,000 deaths for each of the ten months of battle. It was the longest and most devastating battle of WW1
July 1, 1916- November 1, 1916
France (Western Front)
English and French vs. Germans
symbolized the horrors of warfare- by the end of the battle the British had suffered 420k casualties, French 200k, and Germans 500k.
May 31- June 1, 1916
Jutland, Denmark (Naval Battle)
British Royal Navy's Grand Fleet vs. Germany Navy's High Seas Fleet
Outcome/ Significance:
The greatest naval battle of the First World War. Jutland had the ingredients to be a great British naval victory- but the end result was much less clear-cut. Although it was the only major naval battle of WW1, it became the largest sea battle in naval warfare history- in terms of the number of battleships engaged.
July 5- August 16, 1918
: Marne River, France (Western Front)
French, British, US vs German
Turning point of the war on the Western Front. It began as a German offensive attack but ended as a successful Allied counter-attack. This marked the last real attempt by the Central Powers to win WW1. Allied Casualties were: French 95k, British 13k, United States 12K. For the Germans: 168k.
Question 6
League of Nations
Treaty of Versailles= Official End of WW1
Wilson's Plan for Peace
"Fourteen Points"
Germans defeated at Saint Mihiel
Russia pulls out of WW1
How did the war come to an end?
Beaten down from war- Russia signs the Treaty
of Brest-Litovsk
- a peace agreement
with Germany in 1918.
Meanwhile in Russia- a
Communist Revolution
is going on. The
- a group of communists led by
Vladmir Lenin,
overthrows the Czar of Russia.
This closes the "Eastern Front"
Fresh from training,
General Pershing's American Expeditionary Forces
help defeat the
on the border of France and Germany.

Wilson's Plan for
"Peace without Victory"
began in January of 1917 and became known as
"Wilson's Fourteen Points".

Main Points Which cause?
1. Focused on limiting the size of armies

is an agreement to stop fighting
Why did Germany agree to stop fighting?
Germany's Allies
started to pull out of war.
Did you know?

Veteran's Day is celebrated on November 11th every year because that is when Germany agreed to stop fighting in WW1.

Sit with your partners. Today we will finish up presentations. Followed by a brief overview of your "snow day" assignment.

The main battles will not be in your test. You do need to know where a majority of the battles were fought.

Test is Thursday and Friday.

Missing POW

Wounded %

Missing & POW %
5,000,000 Allied Deaths
3,500,000 Central Deaths

20,000,000 Wounded
"Lost Generation"
Allies spent $145 Billion
Central Powers spent $63 Billion
$30 Billion in property destroyed= mainly in France
Flu kills 30 million people worldwide starting in 1918
Above all else- Germans were angered over the terms of the Treaty of Versailles.
Germany entered a severe economic depression over the next decade.
- idea of "Social Darwinism- the stronger nations will survive, emphasis on masculinity, war proves manhood

Russia will protect Serbia and/ or Slavs
France responds by allying with Russia and England
Germany allies with Austria- Hungary and tells them they will support them no matter what
Industrialization caused Imperialism bc of need for more resources and markets= therefore all nations wanted colonies in Africa and Asia
Kaiser- crazy military man
Ex- John Bull= fat
yellow journalism, sensationalism, cartoons, encourage stereotypes of other nations and foster rivalries
While riding through the streets, 7 Serbian nationalist assassins attack Ferdinand and his wife. Gavrilo Princip shoots both and kills them.
Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was taking a trip to Sarajevo with his wife Sophie.
Guns often jammed
Were extremely heavy (80-120 pounds)
Would overheat and become inoperative
-Conditions: cold, wet, muddy= breeding ground for disease and lice
-"No Man's Land"
-accounted for many deaths, early in the war
-mustard gas was odorless and would cause blisters inside and out on victims
-Chlorine gas once inhaled would destroy the victim's respiratory organs and bring on choking attacks
slow: 4mph
Could only fit 3 soldiers at most
would often get stuck in the mud
-over 100,000 were used, and had a success rate of 95%
-Pigeons played a vital part in WW1, as they proved to be an extremely reliable way of sending messages
lightly armored- had to attack by surprise
Germany responded by using submarines called "U-Boats" to sink any ships coming to England
"Bombers" were pilots who would toss a bomb out the side of the plane with their hands.
They had to fly low to the ground which was dangerous because they could be shot down by enemy rifles
French, British, Russia
need for more soldiers
greater casualties=
new weapons and tactics of war=
4. American business had interest in staying neutral to keep making money (they can trade with both sides)
3. Civil War Vet's don't want more war
2. Impact of Immigration on America= many different cultures in America
In response-
Germans use "U-boats" to sink any ships coming to England
in an effort to cut off supplies to England.
Last Straw
In March 1917, American newspapers
get hold of a "secret" telegram sent from German foreign minister Arthur Zimmerman to Mexico.
Get Mexico to declare war on U.S.

Committee on Public Information (CPI)
Goal 1: Support
They ruled: He presented a "clear and present" danger to the US gov't during a time of war, and was therefore guilt.
Charles Schenck was arrested for distributing pamphlets to potential WW1 war draftees, encouraging them to avoid the draft. He appealed his decision to the Supreme Court on the grounds that they violated his 1st amendment right of Freedom of Speech.
