WWI(1914-1918)

WWI was caused by the conflicts in Europe. Before the war started, there was already a conflict in Europe about who owns which lands. It officially started when a Serbian assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the Austria-Hungarian throne. When they declared war on each other, Russia worried that its trade route would get destroyed, so it allied with Serbia. Germany told Russia to back off, but Russia didn't listen, so Germany allied with Austria-Hungary. Next, since France had a alliance with Russia, Germany asked if France was going to join the war. When France didn't respond, Germany declared war on France. However, to invade France, Germany had to go through Belgium. When the King of Belgium refused to let the German soldiers through, Germany declared war on Belgium. Afterwards, most of the countries in Europe joined the war because of their alliences. The U.S. joined the war in 1917 because:

1.Germany sank the British steamship Lusitaniawhich had many American civilians on board.

2. Germany sent a telegraph to Mexico, asking it to join the war on its side. To convince Mexico to join the war, Germany promised to give it the land back that it lost to the U.S.

3. Germany sank 3 American ships, killing millions.

4. The Allied Powers were losing because Russia dropped out of the war because of its own war.

WWI ended with the Treaty of Versailles. The treaty punished Germany and formed the League of Nations. The people in the League of Nation would talk things out to prevent future wars.
