World War 1

By Hannah Worthey And Emily Wiley

WWI

The U.S. got in involved in the WWI when Germany sank Lusitania unexpectedly because they thought a British passenger was smuggling arms. Also, because not joining WWI would have cost the U.S. about 1 million to 4 million dollars in the passing of years of WWI going on. Japan bombed Pearl Harbor that's when we went to war with every one across seas.

Quote


  • “The 1930s, Kennedy said, 'taught us a clear lesson; aggressive conduct, if allowed to go unchecked and unchallenged, ultimately leads to war.”
    John F. Kennedy
In my opinion what John F. Kennedy was saying was that with looking at what is in front of you and what you are doing it will lead to war.
