Woodrow Wilson Part 2

US History Repeated

Dec 19 2022 • 27 mins

Jimmy and Jean continue the conversation on Woodrow Wilson and have THREE guests!

We would like to thank:

Emily Kilgore, Director of Education and Development at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library & Museum

Andrew Philips, Curator at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library & Museum

Elizabeth Karcher, President of the Woodrow Wilson House in Washington DC.

While World War One breaks out (We will go into much greater detail on WWI In a separate set from Wilson) we discuss political neutrality, but economically, not so much.

We get into the election of 1916, the Espionage Act, The Sedition Act, and some interesting Supreme Court Cases that stemmed from the aftermath of the legislation.

Prohibition was passed in Wilson's presidency, and you can listen to our podcast on Prohibition which includes some LaSalle family history!

We also discuss the #SpanishFlu and that pandemic as well as how some countries handled that pandemic differently than others.

Always more to learn, so take a listen!
