  • Roles and Goals Source 3 Source 1 Source 2 Woodrow Wilson (winning the election for President as the Democratic Partys candidate in 1912, and again in 1916) held one of the main roles in the creation of the Treaty of Versailles. His varying goals differed to those of the European diplomats he worked with in the creation of the treaty; Wilson wanted the treaty to follow his fourteen points, however, negotiations between himself, Lloyd George of England and Clemenceau of France did not go smoothly, as they felt Germanys punishment needed to be harsher.

  • Wilson within the Entry into World War One "We are glad, now that we see the facts with no veil of false pretence about them, to fight thus for the ultimate peace of the world and for the liberation of its peoples, the German peoples included; for the rights of nations great and small and the privilege of men everywhere to choose their way of life and of obedience. The world must be made safe for democracy....It is a fearful thing to lead this great peaceful people into war, into the most terrible and disastrous of all wars, civilization itself seeming to be in the balance. But the right is more precious than peace, and we shall fight for the things which we have always carried nearest our hearts."-- Declaration of war against Germany, Apr. 2, 1917

The Treaty also gave Germanys territories to a number of surrounding countries and stripped Germany of all overseas and African colonies, and strictly limited its military. Source 1 Source 2 Source 3
