Website Spotlight: Woodrow Wilson

Website URL:

Introductory Note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

Among the many worthwhile aspects of the Miller Center (University of Virginia) site, I ask the students to concentrate on the following four essays:

Life Before the Presidency
Campaigns and Elections
Domestic Affairs
Foreign Affairs

~~For a review of the Miller Center website: (National History Education Clearinghouse)


For additional quality material about President Wilson:

American Presidents (American Experience)

Woodrow Wilson

These are the specific links from the website that I ask my students to work through:

Ellen Axson Wilson (Wilson's First Wife)

Edith Bolling Galt Wilson (Wilson's Second Wife)

Election of 1912

Wilson's Legacy

William Jennings Bryan

Colonel Edward House

Henry Cabot Lodge

Gallery: Poster Art of World War I

Teacher's Guide Lesson 4: War and Peace
