9. Which of Wilson's Fourteen Points did he feel was the most important or significant? (5 points)
freedom of the seas
reduction in arms by all nations
creation of the League of Nations
self-determination for colonies
Wilson believed the most important of the 14 Points was the last point, which established the League of Nations. [ He was more optimistic than realistic in hoping the European leaders would give up their demand for punishment of Germany and land they could add to their nations. They did everything to cancel Wilson's dream. You could also mention that he was treated as a conquering hero in
Europe. When he went to Paris, London, etc, some of the largest crowds ever to hear a foreign dignitary meet him. He also failed to bring any major Republicans with him to Paris and this hurt his chances with Congress to get the Treaty approved.
