Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Turks in the Snoot at Erzurum 

American Anger Was Growing Over Submarine Sinkings

The German Press Portrayed the Americans as Believing Themselves
Entitled to Special Treatment

The Kitchener Armies Were Arriving on the Battlefield

Anti-War Cartoon from The Masses

Former President Roosevelt Portrayed as a Warmonger

Woodrow Wilson Re-elected on "Keeping the Nation Out of the War"
