Woodrow Wilson Web Critique
The name of the website is American Experience Woodrow Wilson. The URL address is: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/wilson/. This web page gives extensive information about the film Woodrow Wilson, which tells the tale of Woodrow Wilson and his accomplishments before, after, and while he was President of the United States. It gives a great amount of detail that gives the audience a chance to learn more about Woodrow Wilson’s personal life all the way from when he was a youth, which may give clues to the kinds of decisions he made as president and influenced his policies.
It is widely accepted that Woodrow Wilson might have been the best Democratic president in history. Woodrow Wilson was elected President of the United States in November of 1912. There was indeed a long road to get to presidency as I have learned from information on this website. Before having a career in politics, he was a college professor and a university president. As a young man, he did not show any potential whatsoever, but eventually grew up and took a liking to politics.
There is a lot to be said about Woodrow Wilson and what he has and has not accomplished. For example, Wilson is most known for leading America to involvement with World War I, although he was reluctant at first, but eventually was all the way involved with this war that took a toll on all participating countries. His proposed idea of the League of Nations never really came to fruition, but other forms of his idea have taken place such as NATO which is an international union of leaders from every nation. Another black eye on Wilson’s career is the fact that he did not fully support African American civil rights or women’s suffrage.
After the effects of World War I, Wilson had plans on implementing a new world order. This is very interesting to me because the new world order has always been a subject of great interest to me,
