How Did The Zimmerman Telegram Affect America

Satisfactory Essays
In the World War I exhibit, there was a section about America selling to the allies different materials but remaining neutral in the war until the sinking of the Lusitania and the Zimmerman telegram. We learned about this in AP European History before, but mostly just a brief overview as we focused more on how the Europeans were impacted by these events. The exhibit informed me more on how there was a Mexican border conflict that heightened the tension and made it more impactful when the Zimmermann telegram was intercepted. We had learned that the Zimmerman telegram had an impact on america joining the war, and it was interesting to get more background about it. In the future, I would like to learn more about the espionage and sedition acts
