2. "When America Joined WWI and Became a Global Power"

"On April 6, 1917, the United States entered World War I after the U.S. House of Representatives followed the lead of the U.S. Senate in approving a declaration of war against Germany."

American perspectives on the Great War [WW1] thanks to one-hundred years of hindsight. Hindsight ALWAYS 20/20 perfect vision. It SEEMED like the correct thing to do at the time.
