Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924)

President Woodrow Wilson resisted American intervention in World War I, even though politicians such as Theodore Roosevelt denounced him as a traitor and a coward. But when the Germans resumed their all-out submarine warfare in early 1917, Wilson's commitment to neutrality was stretched beyond the breaking point. On April 2, 1917, he appeared before Congress and delivered one of the greatest speeches of his life, declaring that "the world must be made safe for democracy."
