They would attack every ship, even ones from neutral countries, passing through the British Isles. Many innocent merchant ships were sunk, but one of the most notable was the Lusitania. Though it was carrying ammunition, it was mostly just a passenger ship. The attack killed around 1,201 people, including about 128 Americans. After hearing this, President Woodrow Wilson had told the German government to stop sinking unarmed and neutral ships.
Due to these three leading causes, the U.S was no longer neutral in World War I. By 1915, World War 1 had already taken many lives in Europe.

With a rising middle class living in fear of the controlling and powerful business elite and political machines, the government needed to intervene. Therefore, in the late 1890’s the government passed the Sherman Antitrust Act which banned industrial monopolies that limited competition. The law sought to increase competition of the sale of items and goods, thereby helping the middle and lower classes earn money without fear of dominance of the wealthy elite and trusts. However, the act had little effect because the wording was so vague.
On February 1, Woodrow Wilson released the extraordinary announcement of the Imperial German Government. The Imperial German Government’s purpose was to put aside all restraints of law or of humanity and use it’s submarines to sink every vessel. “The present German submarine warfare against commerce is a warfare against mankind,” Woodrow Wilson mentioned in his speech. This speech was monumental because it convinced American citizens entry into the war was necessary, brought America into a devastating war, probed America was a power of the world, brought women into workplaces, and it pushed for women’s suffrage.

However, it was their obsession with silver that prevented the Populists from expanding their political appeal, by building an urban-rural coalition. Their insistence on silver brought failure, because it prevented the voters from focusing on more important reforms, they were afraid that the silver coinage would lower their wages. In contrast, the Progressives started to influence all classes with their reforms.
The war involved more than thirty countries. Fifty million people died and millions were injured. When the Germans lost World War I they lost many lands and so the Germans wanted to seize some lands and so they invaded many countries including Poland, Austria and much more.

Huthmacher says that not only is the middle class important and also considered the progressives but he includes the lower class too. Perhaps the Lower class is even stronger He strongly believes that the workforce was important at this time and that if names or key terms in society had to do with anything with the workforce that the “Middle class was set out to right the wrongs of these times”.
