McAdoo, William G. (1863-1941), Press statement re: Woodrow Wilson’s work at the Peace Conference (Versailles)

Discussion

This is a press release by someone about Woodrow Wilson's work on the Treaty of Versailles. This person is an admirer of Wilson who believes that his motives were right and that the treaty cannot be viewed as a failure simply because it did not achieve all of Wilson's goals (namely the League of Nations). However, according to this person, it did lay the foundation for world peace, which was Wilson's ultimate goal.

I could use this in conjunction with the actual Treaty of Versailles. I could have students evaluate the treaty. I might actually have them write their own press release addressing the question of whether or not the treaty was a failure for Wilson, then I could have them read this guys assessment and compare his evaluation to their own.
