The Traveler… marching off to war…

blog-4-3-2017-wwiToday’s journey took me to New York City where I found The New York Times of April 3, 1917 [1] had a dreadful headline… “President Calls For War Declaration, Stronger Navy, New Army of 500,000 Men, Full Co-Operation with German’s Foes”. “At 8:30 o’clock tonight the United States virtually made its entrance into the war. At that hour┬áPresident Wilson appeared before a joint session of the senate and House and invited it to consider the fact that Germany had been making war upon us and to take action in recognition of that fact…”

Enough said.
