America had two leaders, last name, Wilson. The 28th President was Woodrow Wilson. He received a Nobel Prize. The other Wilson, James Wilson, helped write the U.S. Constitution.
Because of the efforts of one of America’s leaders, the United Nations exists.
America’s 28th President was Woodrow Wilson. He supported the establishment of the League of Nations. Even though he received a Nobel Prize for this initiative, the USA did not support him and refused to join. The League lasted from 1920 to 1946. The United Nations was created to serve as its replacement. Neither organizations accomplish what they were set up to do but their mission objective looks very good “on paper”. Promote international cooperation and maintain world peace. Aaahh! Were it not for dreamers, a sad sad world this would be. Mr. Wilson was good president, although not considered the best President. Many people feel that Abraham Lincoln was our “best” president.
