DB 7, The Great War

The decision to enter the Great War was vigorously contested in the United States. This week’s DB is going to focus on the debate over that decision. Choose an identity and position from one of the following:

President Wilson, or pro-war political figure
IWW or AFL labor leader
Immigrant of German or Irish ancestry
Pacifist
Socialist
Radical or moderate suffragist

Use the textbook and lecture to educate yourself about early reactions in the US to the War in Europe. You may research your character and position using outside resources, but this must be documented using MLA citations.

Engage in the debate writing a letter to the editor of the local paper. In this letter, make sure to:

identify yourself and position regarding the war,
explain how you see the war affecting the interests you represent, and
what is in the best interests of the country, and why.
The purpose of the letter is to persuade others and affect public opinion.
