Notes

Abstract: In 1917 when President Woodrow Wilson asked the U.S. Congress for a declaration of war against Germany, he promised that the Great War would be the "war to end all wars." Unfortunately, this idealistic promise was more than anyone could deliver. My research focuses on the influences that shaped President Wilson's idealism and how he expanded his ideals in persuading the American public to go to war. I refer to opinion and editorial sections from major newspapers across America to determine and demonstrate the degree of Wilson's idealism in public addresses and the general public response to his views. My research offers an explanation and an assessment of Wilson's idealism, including its expansion and significance in U.S. foreign policy since 1917.
