Woodrow Wilson on January 22, 1917 in an address to the United States Senate called for a peace without victors, but the Treaty signed by the participating nations was everything but that. The blame for the war was placed on Germany and justified the reparations that were outlined by the treaty for the war.

The author believes that George Washington should be ranked as the best president in American history and that he attained his power through his readiness to give it up.

Lin-Manuel Miranda who wrote the American musical Hamilton, which displays many different characters and their actions. The one character who’s actions essentially was the cause of the tension between him and the U.S eventually leading to a revolutionary war, was no one other than the great King George III. In the first song “You’ll Be Back” the king sings about his love for the U.S and how they’ll come back to the crown, but he can’t see past his madness and realize his actions and unfair treatment was the cause to the revolutionary war. In the song “I Know Him” King George seems to be still stuck in his old ways and in a great mood believing the U.S will fall apart with its new president since Washington stepped down.
