About Rasputin
Grigory Efimovich Rasputin was born a peasant in prokrovskye on January 10, 1869. He went religious around the age of 18 years old and spent 3 months in Verkhoturye Monastery. He later got married to a women named Proskovia Fyodorovana and had 3 children, two girls and a boy. He began to wonder around as a pilgrim traveling around and ended up coming back to his hometown Pokrovskye in 1903. By then he started claiming himself as a "Holy man" who had healing powers and could predict the future. Tsarina Aleksandra, the emperor of Russia brought Rasputin into the palace 1908 to help his son Aleksei Nikolayevich who had been affected with hemophilia, what was then called the "Royal Disease."
Murder of Rasputin
Seen a "dark force" that was ruining mother Russia, the aristocracy couldn't stand seeing a peasant in high authority. Rasputin was a lover of alcohol and sex, but he appeared to be a saint in front of the royal couple. Others saw him as a dirty sex craved peasant. To save the monarchy members of the aristocracy attempted to kill the holy man on December 16-17 of 1916 they made and simple attempt to kill Rasputin but find out he wasn't easy to kill. He was poisoned by being given wine and pastries but didn't react so he was shot. A few minutes later he was retrieve and tried to escape. He was shot again and then beaten, a few minutes later was also thrown into Malaya Nevka River and found dead a few days later. The murders were told to be Feilix Yuspov and Dmitry Paviovich.
Zimmerman Telegram
January 16, 1917 British code workers looked into a message from Zimmerman ment for Heinrich Von Eckardt, the German ambassador of Mexico. It gave the ambassador instruction that if the U.S. enters the war on the side of allies that Von Eckardt was to go to Meixoc's president with an offer to creat a secert wartime allience. The Germans would give military and finacial support for a mexican attack on the U.S. The British office "decoded" the Zimmerman Telegram and handed it over to the U.S in late Febuaray of 1917. By March 1st it was on pages of the news papers nationwide. On April 2, 1917 President Wilson could not go on with his neutrality policy and declared war against Germany.
Sinking of the
May 7, 1915, the British "ocen liner" RMS Lusitantia was torpedoed by a German U-boat.
Of the 1,959 people on board 1,198 people died including 128 Americans. The Lusitania was used to travel people and goods across the Atlantic ocean between the U.S. and Great Britian. All ships headed to Great Britain were told to be on the lookout for U-boats and take precautious measures for example, travel at full speed and make zigzag movements. Unfortunately, Captain William Thomas Turner slowed the Lusitania down because of fog and traveled in line he was unsure of. Neither the captain or any of his crew realized that the German U-boat had already spotted and targeted them. Then finally the U-boat launched a torpedo sinking the Lusitania within 18 to 20 minutes.
Christmas Truce
December 24-25, 1914, Christmas Eve and Day, the Christmas Truce was a tempoary stop to the fighting along the British and German lines around Ypres, Belgium. In some areas, the truce lasted until New Year's Day. "The initial force behind the Christmas Truce came from the Germans." This began with the singing of carols and the appearance of Christmas trees around the trenches. Allied troops, began to join in the singing which led to both sides reaching out to communicate. From these first hesitant contacts informal ceasefires were arranged between units.

For the most part, both sides returned to their trenches later on Christmas Eve. The next morning, Christmas was celebrated in full, with men visiting across the lines and gifts of food and tobacco being exchanged. In several places, games of soccer were played.
Cease Fire Armistice
The last day of the war was November 11, 1918 Which is know as Armistice Day. At 11 a.m.- it was on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, A German Republic was declared and peace feelers went to the Allies. At 5 AM on the morning of November 11 an armistice was signed in a railroad car parked in a French forest near the front lines.

The terms of the agreement called for the end of fighting along the Western Front to start at 11 AM that morning. After four long years of battle, the Great War came to an end. All over the world on November 11, 1918, people were celebrating. "10,000 men were killed, wounded or went missing on November 11th 1918." The Americans alone suffered over 3,000 casualties." "But at the front there was no celebration." Many soldiers believed the Armistice was only temporary and that the war would soon continue.

The remains of Nicholas, Alexandra and three of their children were excavated in a forest near Yekaterinburg in 1991 and positively identified two years later using DNA fingerprinting. The Crown Prince Alexei and one Romanov daughter were not accounted for, fueling the persistent legend that Anastasia, the youngest Romanov daughter, had survived the execution of her family. Of the several "Anastasias" that surfaced in Europe in the decade after the Russian Revolution, Anna Anderson, who died in the United States in 1984, was the most convincing. In 1994, however, scientists used DNA to prove that Anna Anderson was not the czar's daughter but a Polish woman named Franziska Schanzkowska.
On April 4, 1917, the U.S. Senate voted in support of the measure to declare war on Germany. The House concurred two days later. The United States later declared war on Austria-Hungary on December 7, 1917.
April 1917, the continued submarine attacks on American merchant and passenger ships, and the “Zimmerman Telegram’s” implied threat of a German attack on the United States, had served to sway American public opinion in support of a declaration of war. Furthermore, international law stipulated that the placing of U.S. naval personnel on civilian ships to protect them from German submarines already constituted an act of war against Germany. Finally, the Germans, by their actions, had demonstrated that they had no interest in seeking an end to the conflict. These reasons all contributed to President Wilson’s decision to ask Congress for a declaration of war against Germany. They also encouraged Congress to grant Wilson’s request and formally declare war on Germany.
Woodrow Wilson's Fourteen Points were first outlined in a speech Wilson gave to the American Congress in January 1918. Wilson's Fourteen Points became the basis for a peace programme and it was on the back of the Fourteen Points that Germany and her allies agreed to an armistice in November 1918
