U.S entering the war

The United States entered the war because of the Germans decision to resume the policy of unrestricted submarine warfare, and the so-called Zimmerman telegram ,intercepted by the British, in which Germany floated the idea of an alliance with Mexico.

Texas part in WWI

Fair climate, frequent clear skies, bountiful resources and a central location made Texas an ideal setting for wartime facilities. Military posts sprang up statewide to accommodate the constant stream of new recruits, and industrial plants developed rapidly in support of the war effort. As a result, Texas beef, petroleum products, medical supplies, weapons and equipment were used by troops overseas.

End of WW1

Germany had formally surrendered on November 11, 1918, and all nations had agreed to stop fighting while the terms of peace were negotiated. On June 28, 1919, Germany and the Allied Nations (including Britain, France, Italy and Russia) signed the Treaty of Versailles, formally ending the war.
