When Was Wilson President? (TOP ANSWER)

Woodrow Wilson, in full Thomas Woodrow Wilson, (born December 28, 1856, Staunton, Virginia, U.S.—died February 3, 1924, Washington, D.C.), 28th president of the United States (1913–21), an American scholar and statesman best remembered for his legislative accomplishments and his high-minded idealism. Wilson was the founder and foremost advocate of the League of Nations and led the country to victory in World War I. He also received the 1919 Nobel Prize for Peace. The Nineteenth Amendment was added to the U.S. Constitution to give women voting rights. When he was trying to get American support for The Treaty of Versailles (October 1919), he suffered a paralytic strike 🔥 This incapacity continued for most of his term of service and led to the largest crisis of American presidency disability.🔥
Unfortunately, the Germans rendered Wilson’s peace efforts moot by unleashing their submarines on February 1. Wilson debated over his response for the next two years. Even after publishing the Zimmermann Telegram (a secret German communication from the foreign secretary) that offered Texas and New Mexico to Mexico as a condition for going to war with the United States, public opinion continued to be divided. Wilson decided to make an intervention because there was no other option and wanted to use American belligerency to create a lasting, just peace. On April 2, 1917, he had gone before Congress to ask for a declaration of war so that the United States could strive to fulfill his injunction that “the world must be made safe for democracy.” (edited by Doris Sanders from Tirunelveli, India on November 21, 2021)

Although he admitted that he was going to act as prime minister, Wilson is preparing an outline of a legislative program ahead. He’s also breaking with the previous practise by appearing in person before Congress, which was against his presidential tradition. Important help in keeping congressional Democrats in line came from the party’s three-time unsuccessful presidential nominee, William Jennings Bryan, whom Wilson appointed secretary of state. Louis Brandeis (a controversial Boston lawyer who helped Wilson create the New Freedom Agenda during his campaign) provided crucial policy advice. Wilson maintained Congress continuously in session almost every day from April 1913 through October 1914. This was something unprecedented even during Civil War.

These five points included the end of secret negotiations, freedom of trade and reduction in arms. They also called for adjustment of colonial claim, taking into consideration the desires of colonial populations. Wilson’s sixth demand was for Germany and Russia to cease occupying Russian territories. Next, Wilson called for restoration of Belgian and Italian borders as well as the establishment of an independent Polish state. He also demanded autonomy for ethnic groups from the Austro-Hungarian, Ottoman, and French empires. Wilson’s final and, in his mind, most important point was the establishment of a “general association of nations” that would foster international cooperation, freedom, and peace.
