Example text

Senate objections could have been worked out later if the United States had joined the League at the outset, but Wilson himself obviated this possibility by spurning any amendments to his treaty. Hence the question for historians is why he refused to compromise. The likely answer is that after months of hard bargaining with Allied leaders in Paris, Wilson was in no mood for dickering with opponents in Washington (Ferrell 1985; Clements 1987; Heckscher 1991). As the Senate debated, Wilson embarked on a national speaking tour aimed at persuading the American people to support his treaty.

With the campaign slogan ‘‘He Kept Us Out of War,’’ he eked out a narrow victory in 1916. Claiming a new mandate from the American people, Wilson tried to mediate a settlement to the war still raging in Europe. ’’ Wilson offered to help negotiate an armistice based on a return to prewar borders with no punishments for either side. Only a peace among equals could prevent a war for revenge in the future, he warned. Wilson also offered his vision of a new world order based on democracy, disarmament, and free trade that he hoped would emerge from the ashes of war.
