Below are some of the ways in which World War I had an impact on American civil liberties:

-Committee on Public Information Propaganda effectively cast Germans as evil force in World War

-Espionage and Sedition Acts (Loosely worded laws which gave the government wide authority to prosecute war critics)

-Numerous arrests and convictions with long prison sentences for those seen as "disloyal"

-Supreme Court upheld acts, using "clear and present danger" doctrine to limit free speech in time of war

-Persecution of radicals: Wilson administration focused on IWW and Socialist Party as targets of suppression
