    To end World War I, President Wilson created a list of principles to be used as negotiations for peace among the nations.

    During the Chicago race riot, which was raised by racial conflicts throughout Chicago, thirty-eight people died (23 black and 15 white) and over five hundred were injured. It is considered the worst of the approximately 25 riots during the Red Summer and was the worst race riot in Illinois.
