Treaty of Versailles
The Big Deal
The Treaty of Versailles was the most important of the peace treaties that brought World War 1 to an end. If the peace treaty was not signed, the war would have lasted longer and more soldiers would have died.
During the time the Treaty of Versailles was being made, World War 1 was happening. The top world superpowers were battling it out for control of more land.
Impact on America
Once the Treaty of Versailles was signed, it meant that WW1 was over. American writers wrote and talked about the war and the effects after the war ended. They talked about the horrors of the war and how it was the war to end all wars. Some soldiers even wrote about the war in their journal and brought it home, some revealed the contents of them while others kept it to themselves.
