United Sates Declares War on Germany | US History magazine | Scoop.it

After staying a neutral country for three years the U.S was getting anxious to fight but had no good reason too until Germany started unrestricted submarine warfare killing american citizens, in addition Germany had also sent a note to Mexico called the Zimmermann note that said if Mexico became allies with Germany, Germany would get Mexico its land back from the U.S, which was Arizona, California and Texas. Finding about all of this the U.S. went straight into action, even though it wasn't a good idea, if the U.S. just stayed out of all of the war there would not have been the great depression.

I am ashamed of America for joining the war because we didn't need to get involved in it and it only lead to us having the great depression.
