FC: Woodrow Wilson - 28th President of the United States | "America is not anything if it consists of each of us. It is something only if it consists of all of us."

1: Wilson was born in Virginia in 1856. After graduation from Princeton and the University of Virginia Law School, Wilson earned his doctorate at Johns Hopkins University and entered upon an academic career. In 1885 he married Ellen Louise Axson. He was nominated for President in 1912 . In the three-way election he received only 42 percent of the popular vote but an overwhelming electoral vote. After the election Wilson concluded that America could not remain neutral in the World War. On April 2,1917, he asked Congress for a declaration of war on Germany. After the Germans signed the Armistice in November 1918, Wilson went to Paris to try to build an enduring peace. He later presented to the Senate the Versailles Treaty. But the election of 1918 had shifted the balance in Congress to the Republicans. By seven votes the Versailles Treaty failed in the Senate. The President, against the warnings of his doctors, had made a national tour to mobilize public sentiment for the treaty. Exhausted, he suffered a stroke and nearly died. Tenderly nursed by his second wife, Edith Bolling Galt, he lived until 1924. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
