Woodrow Wilson: A Provocative Plan for Peace
Show Notes

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.
