April's program:2017 marked the 100th anniversary of the United
States entry into World War I. This program will cover the causes of World War
I and the opposing alliances—the Triple Entente and the Triple Alliance. We
will consider how the United States, originally a neutral nation, got involved
in World War I, the Zimmerman Telegram and the role of trench warfare and how
new military weapons—submarines, tanks, machine guns, and aeroplanes affected
the outcome of the Great War. President Woodrow Wilson’s policy of
non-intervention and peacemaking attempts during the Treaty of Versailles men
will round out the program. Presented by Tom DeStefano, instructor at the
