February 3, 1917 President Wilson addressed Congress to announce that diplomatic relations with Germany were severed. In a Special Session of Congress held on April 2, 1917, he delivered a 'War Message.' Four days later on April 6, 1917, The Trenton Evening Times front page headline read, "WAR DECLARED, WILSON SIGNING THE RESOLUTION AT 1:13; ALL GERMAN SHIPS HERE SEIZED BY ARMED U.S. FORCES" Congress overwhelmingly passed that War Resolution which brought the United States into the Great War. I put this graphic together and embellished it with a figure of a WWI "Doughboys" to accompany Lady Liberty as she waved Old Glory.
