DOCUMENT 23
Wilson and U.S. Neutrality

On 18 August 1914 President Woodrow Wilson appealed to the people of the United States to be "impartial in thought as well as in action" toward the belligerent powers fighting World War I.23


MY FELLOW COUNTRYMEN:

The effect of the war upon the United States will depend upon what American citizens say and do. Every man who really loves America will act
