The lie that conned America to join WW1 is still told as true in history books

The BIG lie that led us into WWI

Neutral? Think again

US weapons on the Lusitania

Why did the US get involved with WWI? It was largely based on an emotional response to 128 American dying on the Lusitania.

The reason it outraged so many people was that it was full of civilians, and not thought to have been containing weapons.

The rules of war at the time were that ships containing weapons were free game.

When the shipwreck was discovered later on, tons of US-made weapons were found on the ship.
