The events which led president Wilson to declare war with Germany?
There were many events that led President Woodrow Wilson to change the non-interventionist policy. One event was the torpedoing of the British Cruise liner the Lusitania. About 123 Americans died on board. Wilson warned Germany that another action like that would draw America into the war. Another event that led the president to ask Congress to declare war was the Zimmermann Telegram. In it Germany promised Mexico land from the US, when they annexed it if they joined the German's side in the war. This helped Wilson realize the US was going to get involved in the war eventually. Lastly, When Germany reinstated their policy of unlimited submarine warfare against all nations; Wilson broke off all diplomatic relations with Germany. Two months later, President Wilson asked Congress to declare war on Germany.
