Woodrow Wilson


How was Wilson involved in the peace process?

Wilson led the American delegation to the Paris Peace Conference in late January 1919. At this conference, the Allied countries outlined the terms of the ultimate peace agreement, including the Treaty of Versailles. This treaty signaled the end of World War I and placed blamed for the war on the Germans. The Paris Peace Conference also called for a League of Nations, a precursor to the modern-day United Nations. Wilson actively promoted the idea of a League of Nations, even touring around the United States to get support. For his efforts, he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1919.
