Why did the U.S. join WW1
By: Carter Towers,        Hayden Smith

Britain has been one of U.S.'s greatest and best trading partners even before WW1 so there had already been heat between U.S. ,and Central Powers because Britain has joined the war.then while an American line with a name of Housatonic was sunk by German U-Boats while traveling to Britain to deliver supplies this did not help the U.S. join the war. This was not the only time this happened, several U.S. ships traveling to Britain were also damaged or sunk by German U-Boat. April 2, U.S. declared war on Germany

The US was recruiting men for the war.

What weapons were used during WW1?

In WW1 there were many weapons used, such as the rifle. The rifle was mainly used by British soldiers, and fifteen rounds could be fired per minute and an enemy could be shot from 14,000 meters away. Also the machine gun was used in WW1, it required 4-6 men to work each of them! The machine gun was not all terrain though, it had to be used on flat ground, however the machine gun has a fire power of 100 guns. Poison gas had another big role in WW1. Poison gas such as mustard gas caused slow and painful deaths if inhaled, but of course the weather had to be right, the wind must be blowing in the same direction the wind had to be blowing the way they wanted the gas to go or not blowing at all. Zeppelins, though used very briefly they had a strong firepower including bombs. Tanks were first used in WW1. They required a crew of three and could only reach speeds of 3 mph. Planes were also introduced in WW1 with a large firepower, sometimes including machine guns, bombs, and cannons! Torpedoes, used by German U-boats to blow up ships carrying supplies from the U.S. to Britain.

These are only a few of the weapons used during WW1.
