Transcript of Armistice

Work Silently
It took a long time before the United States entered

World War I. First, the U.S. almost got involved when

the Lusitania was attacked. Then the Germans sunk three

American ships. Shortly after, a letter from Germany to

Mexico frightened the Americans. Finally, the U.S. sent

their first troops into World War I.

It took over three years before the United States entered World War I. The Germans, French, Russians and British had already lost millions of lives in the trenches. The United States first thought about getting involved in 1915 when 128 U.S. citizens were killed on board of a British passenger ship that was attacked by the Germans. Germany was targeting the British, killing over 1,000 people in all. Two years later, the U.S. was struck again by the Germans as three different American ships were direct targets of German U-boats. These boats were rumored to be carrying weapons, which turned out to be true. But, the pen proved mightier than the sword when the Zimmerman letter proved to be too much for American president Woodrow Wilson to ignore. The letter from Germany to Mexico offered the Mexicans help to win some land back from the Americans. Over 50 years prior, the United States defeated Mexico in a pair of wars, taking control of New Mexico, California, Texas, Arizona and parts of what became three other states. With the threat of Germany forming an alliance with Mexico, the U.S. finally caved. In April of 1917, the United States sent their first troops into World War I.
