President Wilson arrives in France to negotiate WWI treaty

On December 13, 1918, President Woodrow Wilson arrived in France to negotiate a treaty to conclude World War I. Wilson was the first U.S. President to visit Europe while in office. His meeting with the other Allied leaders would result in the Treaty of Versailles, which created the League of Nations and redrew borders across Europe. The treaty, however, was rejected by the U.S. Senate, thus preventing the U.S. from joining the League with the other major powers.
