President Wilson appeared before Senate committee
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On August 19, 1919, President Woodrow Wilson appeared before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to urge the ratification of the Treaty of Versailles. Wilson had played a large role in the drafting of the treaty, which brought an end to World War I and established the League of Nations. The treaty was later rejected by the Senate. The US never joined the League of Nations.
