Why Did America Join WW1?

The United States entered World War One after Germany refused to abandon its policy of unrestricted submarine warfare. German submarines were sinking passenger ships on the Atlantic, which led to American casualties even though the United States was officially neutral. Also, the Germans had sent the Zimmerman telegram to Mexico, which proposed an German military alliance with Mexico. In return for Mexico’s military support, Germany would help Mexico win back Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. These two events helped bolster US support for the war, and on April 6, 1917, the United States entered the war. To find more information click here:
