  • American naval and military attaches in Paris and London draft plan for mobilizing US shipping to carry an American army to Europe.

    The United States starts to show that Americans want to help fight in the war.
  • Germans issue peace note suggesting copromise peace.

    It shows that there is a chance that the war could be over sooner than they thought it would be (if the Germans keep to their word).
  • General Staff issues plan to ship American forces at a rate of 120,000 per month begining in August.

    That means that we are not giving up and the war is greater than it was originally thought to be.

    This indicates the end of World War I, with the Germans defeated.
  • Stock Market on Wall Street crashes.

    This marks the start of difficult times, not only for America but for other countries as well.
  • Hitler violates the Treaty of Versailles by introducing military conscription.

    This shows that not only is Hitler a powerful ruler but also that Germany cannot be trusted.
  • United States proclaims neutrality.

    It shows that this time the U.S. is not helping nor hurting either side in the war.
  • United States announces an oil embargo against aggressor states.

    We are further isolating our country and putting more stress on those that are fighting.
  • Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor.

    The United States now has a part in fighting in the war.

    This means that the second world war is finally over.
