Hey guys, I have this essay that is about an event that happen during the WW1. I picked the lusitania, when the germans sink it. Well the essay is about name three things that due to that event affected or involved with U.S.A.  I have two so far, The Sussex Pledge and one of the reasons why U.S.A. enter the war. I would like someone to help me with the third event, thanks.

Well it was also found that the Lusitania was also sunk because it was carrying weapons and ammunition to the British; the US was not technically in the war but they were providing money, weapons and ammo to the Brits.  Another thing I remember is the Zimmerman telegram but that might be from WW II

Im not sure what you're asking.  I know that the German Ambassidor in the USA put up a warning for people not to board the Lusitania because they were shiping weaponry to the Allies.  Maybe you should use wikipedia?

No, the Zimmerman note was from WWI, so you're correct.

I'm looking for an event that happen in WW1 that the US was involved in. An example, because they sunk the lusitania boat, Germany and U.S.  made the Sussex Pledge.  I need something similar that US was involved.

That's not known, but it's very likely.  It's also why the US won't allow anyone to visit the Lusitania.
