Roosevelt 's New Deal. At the end of , summing up the president's efficacy, the Saturday Evening Post magazine stated, "This administration is Woodrow Wilson's and non-other's.
There is not an atom of divided responsibility He is the center of it—the biggest Democrat in the country—the leader and the chief". Wilson began pushing for legislation which culminated with the Federal Trade Commission Act signed in September In doing so, Wilson broke with his predecessors' practice of litigating the antitrust issue in the courts, known as trust-busting ; the new Federal Trade Commission provided a new regulatory approach, to encourage competition and reduce perceived unfair trade practices.
In addition, he pushed through Congress the Clayton Antitrust Act making certain business practices illegal, such as price discrimination , agreements prohibiting retailers from handling other companies' products, and directorates and agreements to control other companies.
The power of this legislation was greater than that of previous anti-trust laws since it dictated accountability of individual corporate officers and clarified guidelines. This law was considered the " Magna Carta " of labor by Samuel Gompers because it ended union liability antitrust laws [ clarification needed ]. In , under threat of a national railroad strike, Wilson approved legislation that increased wages and cut working hours of railroad employees; there was no strike.
In the summer of Wilson gained repeal of toll exemptions at the Panama Canal for American ships; this was received positively by the international community, as a cessation of past discrimination against foreign commerce. The measure was considered unpatriotic by U. With the President reaching out to new constituencies, a series of programs was targeted at farmers. The Smith—Lever Act of created the modern system of agricultural extension agents sponsored by the state agricultural colleges.
The agents taught new techniques to farmers. The Federal Farm Loan Act provided for issuance of low-cost long-term mortgages to farmers. Child labor was curtailed by the Keating—Owen Act of , but the Supreme Court declared it unconstitutional in Taft had supported the revolution that brought about the election of Francisco I. Madero as president of Mexico. Wilson, who took office shortly after Madero's assassination in , rejected the legitimacy of Huerta's "government of butchers" and demanded Mexico hold democratic elections.
Wilson's unprecedented approach meant no recognition and doomed Huerta's prospects. Wilsonian idealism was a reason for American intervention in Latin America until the s and s, when moralistic interventions were abandoned in favor of realism. War between the United States and Mexico was averted through negotiations, and in his reelection campaign for president boasted he had "kept us out of war.
Though the administration had achieved the desired result, it was a pyrrhic victory, as Carranza's lieutenant, Pancho Villa , presented a more serious threat in In early Pancho Villa raided Columbus, New Mexico, killing eighteen Americans and causing an enormous nationwide demand for his punishment.
John Pershing and troops into northern Mexico to capture Villa, which they were unable to do even as Pershing continued his pursuit deep into Mexico. President Carranza then pivoted against the Americans and accused them of a punitive invasion. However, tensions subsided and bilateral negotiations began. The issue had become a possible cause for war with Germany, so Wilson ended Pershing's diversion in February Wilson accorded Carranza diplomatic recognition in April, after Congress declared war on Germany.
Biographer Arthur Link calls it Carranza's victory—his successful handling of the chaos inside Mexico, as well as over Wilson's policies. Mexico was now free to develop its revolution without American pressure. Later, Wilson selected him to command the American forces being sent to fight in France. In a dispute between Colorado miners and their company , a confrontation resulted in the Ludlow Massacre —the deaths of eight strikers, eleven children and two mothers.
Part owner John D. While Wilson succeeded in bringing order to the situation, and demonstrated support for the labor union, the miners' unconditional surrender to the implacable owners was a defeat for Wilson. His wife Ellen's failing health, due to kidney failure , worsened in the spring of ; after a fall, she was bedridden, then rallied briefly, but Wilson wrote "my dear one… grows weaker and weaker, with a pathetic patience and sweetness.
Six months of depression followed for him, though mourning continued. At the same time that Wilson's private world shattered, World War I broke out in Europe, and this momentously changed his political life. In January , Wilson emerged from his depression during a spirited speech in Indianapolis where he said, "the trouble with the Republican Party is that it has not had a new idea for thirty years… the Republican Party is still a covert and a refuge for those who are afraid, for those who want to consult their grandfathers about everything.
This lasted until March , when he moderated, drew back from the bill and, without its passage, congratulated the Congress for its work in the session just ended—his initial journey through mourning was evident. After several meetings, Wilson fell in love with her, and in May, he proposed.
Galt initially rebuffed him, but Wilson was undeterred and continued the courtship. The engagement was not made public until October and they were married on December 18, , after a formal year of mourning. Wilson was the third president to marry while in office.
John Tyler had married in and Grover Cleveland in From until early , Wilson's primary objective was to keep America out of the war in Europe , and his policy was, "the true spirit of neutrality, which is the spirit of impartiality and fairness and friendliness to all concerned.
Wilson told the Senate in August when the war began that the United States, "must be impartial in thought as well as in action, must put a curb upon our sentiments as well as upon every transaction that might be construed as a preference of one party to the struggle before another.
Later that month he explained himself privately to his top foreign policy advisor Colonel House , who recalled the episode later:. Wilson made numerous offers to mediate and sent Colonel House on diplomatic missions; both sides politely dismissed these overtures. When Britain declared a blockade of neutral ships carrying contraband goods to Germany, Wilson mildly protested non-lethal British violations of neutral rights; the British knew that it would not be a casus belli for the United States.
The meaning of the policy, dubiously applied to specific incidents, evolved with the policy of neutrality, but ultimately formed the substance of U. International law required a warning so that passengers and crew could board life boats. No warning was issued and the ship sank in 18 minutes, with a thousand deaths including over Americans.
Wilson said, "There is such a thing as a man being too proud to fight. There is such a thing as a nation being so right that it does not need to convince others by force that it is right". Many reacted to these remarks with contempt. Secretary of State Bryan, strongly opposed to war, resigned and was replaced by Robert Lansing. Wilson threatened a diplomatic break unless Germany repudiated the action; Germany then gave a written promise: Wilson had won a promise that merchant ships would not be sunk without warning, and most importantly had kept the U.
It also included a five-year Navy plan for major construction of battleships, cruisers, destroyers and submarines—showing Wilson's dedication to a big Navy. In March the SS Sussex , an unarmed ferry under the French flag, was torpedoed in the English Channel, and four Americans were counted among the dead; the Germans had flouted the post- Lusitania exchanges.
The president demanded the Germans reject their submarine tactics. This was a clear departure from existing practices—a diplomatic concession from which Germany could only more brazenly withdraw, and regrettably did. Wilson made a plea for postwar world peace in May ; his speech recited the right of every nation to its sovereignty, territorial integrity and freedom from aggression.
At home the speech was seen as a turning point in policy. In Europe the words were received by the British and the French without comment. His harshest European critics rightly thought the speech reflected indifference on Wilson's part; indeed, Wilson never wavered from a belief that the war was the result of corrupt European power politics. Wilson made his final offer to mediate peace on December 18, As a preliminary, he asked both sides to state their minimum terms necessary for future security.
The Central Powers replied that victory was certain, and the Allies required the dismemberment of their enemies' empires; no desire for peace existed, and the offer lapsed. Wilson's remarriage rejuvenated his personal aspirations for re-election.
Edith Wilson enjoyed, as Ellen never had, the crowds and the power as a close collaborator with her husband. He was presented with a vacancy on the Supreme Court, which he succeeded in filling with a controversial nominee, Louis Brandeis , the first Jewish member of the court.
The president called the parties to a White House summit in August—after two days and no results, Wilson proceeded to settle the issue, using the maximum eight-hour work day as the linchpin. Once the Congress passed the Adamson bill incorporating the president's proposal, the strike was cancelled. Wilson was praised for averting a national economic disaster, though the law was received with howls from conservatives denouncing a sellout to the unions and a surrender by Congress to an imperious president.
McCormick , a leading progressive, and Ambassador Henry Morgenthau was recalled from Turkey to manage campaign finances.
Wilson, renominated without opposition, employed his campaign slogan "He kept us out of war", though he never promised unequivocally to stay out of the war.
In his acceptance speech on September 2, , Wilson pointedly warned Germany that submarine warfare resulting in American deaths would not be tolerated, saying "The nation that violates these essential rights must expect to be checked and called to account by direct challenge and resistance. It at once makes the quarrel in part our own.
As the Party platform was drafted, Senator Owen of Oklahoma urged Wilson to take ideas from the Progressive Party platform of "as a means of attaching to our party progressive Republicans who are in sympathy with us in so large a degree.
Wilson, in turn, included in his draft platform a plank that called for all work performed by and for the federal government to provide a minimum wage, an eight-hour day and six-day workweek, health and safety measures, the prohibition of child labour, and his own additions safeguards for female workers and a retirement program. Theodore Roosevelt commented that the only thing different between Hughes and Wilson was a shave. However, Hughes had to try to hold together a coalition of conservative Taft supporters and progressive Roosevelt partisans, and his campaign never assumed a definite form.
Wilson ran on his record and ignored Hughes, reserving his attacks for Roosevelt. When asked why he did not attack Hughes directly, Wilson told a friend, "Never murder a man who is committing suicide.
The election 's outcome was in doubt for several days and was determined by several close states. Wilson won California by 3, of almost a million votes cast, and New Hampshire by 56 votes. Hughes won Minnesota by votes out of over , In the final count, Wilson had electoral votes vs.
Wilson was able to win by picking up many votes that had gone to Teddy Roosevelt or Eugene V. In December , a month after his reelection, Wilson addressed a conference on social insurance at which he spoke of the issue as "the dominant interest of our own time". Wilson objected to Britain's seizure of mail from neutral ships and its blacklisting of firms that did any business with Germany.
Wilson insisted a league of nations was the solution to ending the war. Early in the German ambassador Johann von Bernstorf informed the U. The president said, "We are the sincere friends of the German people and earnestly desire to remain at peace with them. We shall not believe they are hostile to us unless or until we are obliged to believe it". Wilson delivered his War Message to a special session of Congress on April 2, , declaring that Germany's latest pronouncement had rendered his "armed neutrality" policy untenable and asking Congress to declare Germany's war stance was an act of war.
The German government, Wilson said, "means to stir up enemies against us at our very doors". He then also warned that "if there should be disloyalty, it will be dealt with a firm hand of repression. The world must be made safe for democracy We have no selfish ends to serve. We desire no conquest, no dominion. We seek no indemnities for ourselves, no material compensation for the sacrifices we shall freely make. How strange it seems to applaud that.
The declaration of war by the United States against Germany passed Congress by strong bipartisan majorities on April 4, , with opposition from ethnic German strongholds and remote rural areas in the South. Wilson refused to make a formal alliance with Britain or France but operated as an "associated" power—an informal ally with military cooperation through the Supreme War Council in London.
Colonel House was Wilson's main channel of communication with the British government. March also brought the first of two revolutions in Russia, which impacted the strategic role of the U. The overthrow of the imperial government removed a serious barrier to America's entry into the European conflict, while the second revolution in November relieved the Germans of a major threat on their eastern front, and allowed them to dedicate more troops to the Western front, thus making U.
Wilson initially rebuffed pleas from the Allies to dedicate military resources to an intervention in Russia against the Bolsheviks , based partially on his experience from attempted intervention in Mexico; nevertheless he ultimately was convinced of the potential benefit and agreed to dispatch a limited force to assist the Allies on the eastern front.
The Germans launched an offensive at Arras which prompted an accelerated deployment of troops by Wilson to the Western front—by August a million American troops had reached France. The Allies initiated a counter offensive at Somme and by August the Germans had lost the military initiative and an Allied victory was in sight. In the exchange of notes, Germany agreed to the Fourteen Points being incorporated into the armistice; House then procured agreement from France and Britain, but only after threatening to conclude a unilateral armistice without them.
Pershing's plea to drop the armistice and instead demand an unconditional surrender by Germany. All of the above, known collectively as the "war cabinet", met weekly with Wilson at the White House. More favorable treatment was extended to those unions that supported the U.
Wilson worked closely with Samuel Gompers and the AFL, the railroad brotherhoods, and other 'moderate' unions, which saw enormous growth in membership and wages during Wilson's administration. Despite this, appeals to buy war bonds were highly successful. The purchase of wartime bonds had the result of shifting the cost of the war to the taxpayers of the affluent s.
Anarchists, communists , Industrial Workers of the World members, and other antiwar groups were targeted by the Department of Justice ; many of their leaders were arrested for incitement to violence, espionage, or sedition. In an effort at reform and to shake up his Mobilization program, Wilson removed the chief of the Army Signal Corps and the chairman of the Aircraft Production Board on April 18, The Hughes report released on October 31 found no major corruption violations or theft in Wilson's Mobilization program, although the report found incompetence in the aircraft program.
With congressional elections approaching, in Wilson made an appeal to the public for the retention of a Democratic majority and this seriously backfired due to its self-serving tone—Republicans successfully picked up majorities in both houses of Congress. Wilson initiated a secret series of studies named The Inquiry , primarily focused on Europe, and carried out by a group in New York which included geographers, historians and political scientists; the group was directed by Col.
It was the clearest expression of intention made by any of the belligerent nations. The speech, known as the Fourteen Points, was authored mainly by Walter Lippmann and projected Wilson's progressive domestic policies into the international arena. The first six points dealt with diplomacy, freedom of the seas and settlement of colonial claims. Then territorial issues were addressed and the final point, the establishment of an association of nations to guarantee the independence and territorial integrity of all nations—a League of Nations.
The address was translated into many languages for global dissemination. When the time came, Wilson spent six months in Paris for the Peace Conference, thereby becoming the first U. Wilson took a break from the negotiations and departed February 14, for home, then returned to Paris three weeks later and remained until the conclusion of a treaty in June.
Wilson gave a speech at the Metropolitan Opera House in defense of the League—he was more insistent about it than ever. Heckscher contends that the enduring image of Wilson as a grim, unsmiling and unforgiving figure dates from this visit home during the conference. Heckscher opines that this was a missed opportunity, even though the Congressional majority had changed.
In France he was without the usual control over his message through the media; in fact, the French initiated an aggressive propaganda campaign in the midst of the Conference to affect its outcome. After his visit home, and while en route back to France, Wilson suffered an illness; the ensuing months brought a decline in health and in power and prestige. On arrival, it was immediately clear the conference had struggled in his absence—Col.
House had compromised Wilson's prior gains, and Wilson set out to attempt to regain the lost ground. Wilson very reluctantly accepted these amendments, explaining why he later was more inflexible in the Senate treaty negotiations. Though his symptoms receded within a couple of days, those around him noticed a distinct, lasting deterioration. The charter of the proposed League of Nations was incorporated into the conference's Treaty of Versailles.
Wilson was indifferent to the issue, but acceded to strong opposition from Australia and Britain. For his peace-making efforts, Wilson was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. There can seldom have been a statesman of the first rank more incompetent than the President in the agilities of the council chamber. The chances were less than favorable for ratification of the treaty by a two-thirds vote of the Republican Senate.
Public opinion was mixed, with intense opposition from most Republicans, Germans, and Irish Catholic Democrats. In numerous meetings with Senators, Wilson discovered opposition had hardened. Despite his weakened physical condition Wilson decided to barnstorm the Western states, scheduling 29 major speeches and many short ones to rally support. Wilson had earlier downplayed Germany's guilt in starting the war by calling for "peace without victory", but he had taken an increasingly hard stand at Paris and rejected advice to soften the treaty's treatment of Germany.
She attempted an intolerable thing, and she must be made to pay for the attempt. Wilson had a series of debilitating strokes and had to cut short his trip on September 26, He became an invalid in the White House, closely monitored by his wife, who insulated him from negative news and downplayed for him the gravity of his condition.
It proved possible to build a majority for the treaty in the Senate, but the two-thirds coalition needed to ratify was insurmountable.
The largest bloc—Lodge and the Republicans—wanted a treaty with reservations, especially on Article X, which empowered the League of Nations to make war without a vote by the United States Congress. Finally, a bipartisan group of 13 " irreconcilables " opposed a treaty in any form.
Cooper and Bailey suggest that Wilson's stroke in September had debilitated him from negotiating effectively with Lodge. Wilson's administration did effectively demobilize the country at the war's end. A plan to form a commission for the purpose was abandoned in the face of Republican control of the Senate, which complicated the appointment of commission members.
Instead, Wilson favored the prompt dismantling of wartime boards and regulatory agencies. A wartime bubble in prices of farmland burst, leaving many farmers deeply in debt after they purchased new land.
There were social tensions as veterans tried to find jobs, and existing workers struggled to protect their jobs, as well as to gain better wages and conditions. Major strikes in the steel, coal, and meatpacking industries disrupted the economy in As the election of approached, Wilson momentarily imagined that a deadlocked Democratic convention might nominate him for a third term with a campaign focused on the League of Nations.
No one around the President adequately clarified for him that he was too incapacitated, had insufficient support, and that the League defeat was irreversible.
Wilson frequently intervened in Latin American affairs, saying in Additionally, American troops in Haiti—under the command of the federal government—forced the Haitian legislature to elect as president a pro-Western candidate who was favored by Wilson though less popular among the Haitian citizenry.
The occupation lasted until , and was notorious for its brutality against those in the resistance. After Russia left World War I following the Bolshevik Revolution of , the Allies sent troops there to prevent a German or Bolshevik takeover of allied-provided weapons, munitions and other supplies previously shipped as aid to the pre-revolutionary government. Though specifically instructed not to engage the Bolsheviks, the U. Revolutionaries in Russia resented the United States intrusion.
Robert Maddox wrote, "The immediate effect of the intervention was to prolong a bloody civil war, thereby costing thousands of additional lives and wreaking enormous destruction on an already battered society. In , Wilson guided American foreign policy to "acquiesce" in the Balfour Declaration without supporting Zionism in an official way. Wilson expressed sympathy for the plight of Jews, especially in Poland and France.
In May , Wilson sent a long-deferred proposal to Congress to have the U. Hovannisian states that Wilson "made all the wrong arguments" for the mandate and focused less on the immediate policy than on how history would judge his actions: The immediate cause of Wilson's incapacity in September was the physical strain of the public speaking tour he undertook in support of ratification of the Treaty of Versailles.
In Pueblo, Colorado , on September 25, , he collapsed and never fully recovered. On October 2, , he suffered a serious stroke, leaving him paralyzed on his left side, along with blindness in his left eye and partial vision in his right eye. His wife Edith and his aide Joe Tumulty were said to have helped a journalist, Louis Seibold, present a false account of an interview with the President. He was insulated by his wife, who selected matters for his attention and delegated others to his cabinet.
Wilson temporarily resumed a perfunctory attendance at cabinet meetings. At issue was Wilson's fitness for the presidency at a time when the League fight was reaching a climax, and domestic issues such as strikes, unemployment, inflation and the threat of Communism were ablaze.
No one close to him, including his wife, his physician, or personal assistant, was willing to admit he was unable to perform the duties of the presidency. Kennedy had been left in a permanent vegetative state on account of his brain injuries, the 25th Amendment was ratified in to allow the voluntary or forcible replacement of an unable or unwilling incumbent. Prohibition developed as an unstoppable reform during the war, but Wilson played a minor role in its passage.
By January 16, , the Eighteenth Amendment had been ratified by 36 of the 48 states it needed. Wilson felt Prohibition was unenforceable, but his veto of the Volstead Act was overridden by Congress. But, the consumption of alcohol was never prohibited, and individuals could maintain a private stock that existed before Prohibition went into effect.
Wilson moved his private supply of alcoholic beverages to the wine cellar of his Washington residence after his term of office ended.
Wilson's position that nationwide Prohibition was unenforceable came to pass as a black market quickly developed to evade restrictions, and considerable liquor was both manufactured and smuggled into the country. Speakeasies thrived in cities, towns and rural areas. Wilson favored women's suffrage at the state level, but held off support for a nationwide constitutional amendment because his party was sharply divided. The white South was the main center of opposition—only Arkansas gave women voting rights.
From to , a highly visible campaign by the National Woman's Party NWP disparaged Wilson and his party for not enacting any amendment on the matter. Wilson did keep in close touch with the much larger and more moderate suffragists of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. He continued to hold off until he was sure the Democratic Party in the North was supportive; the referendum in New York State in favor of suffrage proved decisive for him and he now came out strongly in support of national suffrage in a January speech to Congress.
Applauding the vitality of women during the First World War, he asked Congress, "We have made partners of the women in this war… Shall we admit them only to a partnership of suffering and sacrifice and toil and not to a partnership of privilege and right? According to historian Adam Tooze , Wilson's presidency came to a calamitous end  with an economic depression.
Wilson's chief of staff "Secretary" was Joseph Patrick Tumulty from to , but he was largely upstaged after when Wilson's second wife, Edith Bolling Galt Wilson, assumed full control of Wilson's schedule. The most important foreign policy advisor and confidant was "Colonel" Edward M. House until Wilson broke with him in early , for his missteps at the peace conference in Wilson's absence.
After the end of his second term in , Wilson and his wife moved from the White House to an elegant town house in the Embassy Row Kalorama section of Washington, D. Wilson was one of only two U. Presidents Theodore Roosevelt was the first to have served as president of the American Historical Association.
In , Wilson opened a law office with former Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby , but Wilson's second attempt at practicing law proved no more enjoyable than his first, and the practice was closed by the end of Wilson experienced more success with his return to writing, and he published short works on the international impact of the American Revolution and the rise of totalitarianism.
He also campaigned for Democratic candidates in the elections , and he hinted to friends that he might pursue a third term in the presidential election. On November 10, , Wilson made a short Armistice Day radio speech from the library of his home, his last national address. The following day he spoke briefly from the front steps to more than 20, well wishers gathered outside the house. On February 3, , Wilson died at home of a stroke and other heart-related problems at age He was interred in a sarcophagus in Washington National Cathedral and is the only president interred in the nation's capital.
Wilson stayed in the home another 37 years, dying there at age 89 on December 28, , which was Woodrow's birthday and the day she was to be the guest of honor at the opening of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge across the Potomac River near Washington. Wilson left the home and much of the contents to the National Trust for Historic Preservation to be made into a museum honoring her husband.
The rest he left to Edith as a life estate with the provision that at her death, his daughters would divide the estate among themselves. Wilson's presidential papers and his personal library are at the Library of Congress. Wilson was the first Southerner to be elected president since Zachary Taylor in Wilson himself identified with the " Lost Cause " view of the Confederacy, which downplayed the importance of slavery to the Confederate cause, instead arguing that it was an attempt to defend a Southern agrarian way of life against Northern intrusion.
Several historians have spotlighted consistent examples in the public record of Wilson's overtly racist policies and political appointments, such as segregationists he placed in his cabinet.
While president of Princeton University , Wilson had discouraged blacks from applying for admission, preferring to keep the peace among white students and alumni. The President defended them, writing that "[the Klan] began to attempt by intimidation what they were not allowed to attempt by the ballot or by any ordered course of public action".
Wilson's War Department drafted hundreds of thousands of blacks into the army, giving them equal pay with whites, but in accord with military policy from the Civil War through the Second World War, kept them in all-black units with white officers, and kept the great majority out of combat. Du Bois —a leader of the NAACP who had campaigned for Wilson believing he was a "liberal southerner"—was offered an Army commission in charge of dealing with race relations; DuBois accepted, but he failed his Army physical and did not serve.
During Wilson's presidency, the film The Birth of a Nation became the first motion picture to be in screened in the White House. The film, while revolutionary in its cinematic technique, glorified the Ku Klux Klan and portrayed blacks as uncouth and uncivilized. Three of Wilson's quotes were used for intertitles in the film, one describing the Reconstruction as a time when "[A]dventurers swarmed out of the North Wilson tried to stop its showing during the World War.
During Wilson's term, segregation was ordered in the Washington offices of the Navy, the Treasury, and the Postmaster General, and photographs became required for all new federal job applicants. When a delegation of black professionals from the National Independent Political League, led by newspaper editor William Monroe Trotter , protested the discriminatory actions, Wilson told them "segregation is not a humiliation but a benefit, and ought to be so regarded by you gentlemen", explained he was trying to "reduce friction," and that he "sincerely believe[d] it to be in their interest".
When Trotter countered by arguing that it was "untenable Your manner offends me". Trotter was then ordered to leave the White House. Employees who were downgraded were transferred to the dead letter office , where they did not interact with the public.
The few African Americans who remained at the main post offices were put to work behind screens, out of customers' sight. Although Villard subsequently corresponded with and met with Wilson about the issue, no change in policy was forthcoming.
The largest denomination of U. It was created in the spirit of Wilson's interest in preparing students for leadership in public and international affairs. The college has placed a marker on the building, renamed Woodrow Wilson Hall, commemorating the home. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in In , Darryl F. Zanuck of 20th Century Fox produced a film titled Wilson. It looked back with nostalgia to Wilson's presidency, especially concerning his role as commander-in-chief during World War I.
One year after Wilson's death the U. Post Office issued the first postage stamp honoring the late president. Since then, four more stamps were issued in Wilson's honor, the last being issued in Woodrow Wilson was also an accomplished author and scholar, having written numerous books and essays.
