This Day in History

January 19, 1920:

The United States Senate rejects the League of Nations.

Following World War I, President Woodrow Wilson and leaders of other Allied nations drew up plans for an international body that would settle disputes between participating countries. The League was formally proposed at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919. Wilson pushed the idea of the League in the United States, tirelessly touring the nation, but to no avail, as the Senate dismissed the notion. Wilson would suffer a stroke while on his tour and pass away four years later.
