Module 8

This module cover WWI. WWI wasn’t as bad as it couldve been for the US in my opinion. We kind of tried to stay neutral for as long as possible, and in the end had 53,000 combat deaths which was relatively low. Our military was pretty weak so Wilson helped to pass the selective service act. Young black men were sent to fight for a country in which they had no right. This served as a major catalyst for black men to want equality in the US. In the end of WWI, some treaties were signed, but not everyone was happy with the terms and this led to some issues that caused WWII.
