Sidebar: “The Author and Signers of the Declaration of Independence,” by Woodrow Wilson

The History of the Americans

This episode is a “sidebar,” in this case way, way, way, off the timeline. The title of the episode is also the title of a speech given by Woodrow Wilson on July 4, 1907.  The occasion was the Jamestown Exposition in Norfolk, Virginia that year, staged to recognize the 300th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown Colony. Wilson’s text in fact travels a long way from its title. The speech is actually about adopting the principles of the Declaration, as Wilson defines them, to regulating a new development, the multinational corporation. The speech is also a window into American politics just over half way between the signing of the Declaration and the present day, when we were fundamentally reconsidering the role of the federal government in our economic and civil lives. You will also see that more than a decade before the Russian Revolution even progressive American politicians were worried about socialism. https://subscribebyemail.com/thehistoryoftheamericans.com/?feed=podcast References and other resources for this episode Woodrow Wilson, “The Author and Signers of the Declaration of Independence” Woodrow Wilson (Wikipedia) Progressive Era (Wikipedia)

Woodrow Wilson: A Provocative Plan for Peace

American POTUS

In late 1918, World War 1 was winding down, but the fighting over what exactly peace would look like, was just getting started.  Woodrow Wilson stepped in with 14-points that he thought would create lasting peace not just then, but for future generations.  He faced an uphill battle though, getting our European allies and our own Congress to back the plan.  Neither was easy and it took a heavy toll on his presidency and his health.

Woodrow Wilson's Epic Blunder

History As It Happens

University of Virginia historian Philip Zelikow says President Woodrow Wilson made the most consequential diplomatic error in U.S. history. In his new book, "The Road Less Traveled," Zelikow presents compelling evidence that Wilson could have avoided getting the U.S. involved in the First World War and brought the conflict to a negotiated end in 1916 in the process. The peace ball was in his hands, but he fumbled it. This reassessment of a critical chapter in history holds important lessons for a world troubled by enormous problems that require international cooperation.
