Treaty That Ended The War

The Treaty of Versailles was signed June 28,1919, the day the war ended, this is actually what ended the war. Signed in the palace of Versailles, this treaty made peace with Germany and the Allies. They divided the land, military, financial, and general means. It was written up by who they called the big three David Lloyd George of Britain, Clemenceau of France and Woodrow Wilson of America.

Impact on American and its Literature

Most American people thought that the treaty was unfair to Germany, many thought that the treat was just to make Britain and France rich, and break down Germany. The authors and poets of this time changed the fashion of writing into a more modernist way of view, and the music was changing to more of a jazz tune. Also some poets used more a plain New England tones.
