William Jewell College Professor Gary Armstrong discussed the U.S. Senate’s rejection of the 1919 Treaty of Versailles to end World War I, which President Woodrow Wilson had spent seven months overseas negotiating. Professor Armstrong argued Wilson had hoped the treaty would vault the U.S. into a leading position in the global order, but that U.S. domestic political divisions -- combined with turmoil created by a flu pandemic, a “Red Scare,” racial unrest and Wilson suffering a stroke - all contributed to his failure to achieve Senate ratification. The National World War I Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri hosted this event and provided the video. close
