Twitter Ye Not - Woodrow Wilson's 14 Point Plan

Twitter Ye Not - Woodrow Wilson's 14 Point Plan

On the 8th January 1918, in an address to Congress, President Woodrow Wilson outlined his 14 Point Plan, which would become the blueprint for the German surrender at the end of the First World War. Here, we imagine the Twitter feed of that week-end.

On the right-hand side I have shown the 28th US President, Woodrow Wilson, his 14-point plan rolled up under his arm. The points included the formation of an independant Poland and the return of Alsace-Lorraine to France.

Across from him stands British Premier (and notorious Welsh womaniser!) David Lloyd George, a bit miffed at having not been consulted on the drafting of the document.

All around them lies the devastation of WWI, whilst between them sits a nervous Dove of Peace.
