10. Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924)
Wilson was the 28th president of the United States and is widely remembered for his progressive reforms, which included mass urbanization and immigration, as well as his resolute leadership of America into the First World War.
He was associated with building a new world order, and the League of Nations is considered to have begun as an idea of his. On the 2nd of April 1917, Wilson asked Congress for a declaration of war on Germany, citing that America’s entrance into the war was a crusade.
Post-war, Wilson drew up the Versailles Treaty’s “Fourteen Points,” which subsequently worked to Germany’s detriment. In his later years, Wilson suffered from a paralyzed left arm and leg as well as digestive tract issues; He died on February the 3rd, 1924.
