Excerpt from America Joins the World: Selections From the Speeches and State Papers of President Wilson, 1914-1918

As these words are written, the bells are pealing and the whistles blowing to celebrate the coming of peace. It may, therefore, seem a strange time to publish a collection of utterances setting forth the aims of America in the War. Yet, in truth, the speeches and letters in this little book are scarcely less timely now than when they were first given to the world. For a war is not like a boys' game, the whole purpose of which is accomplished when the victory is won. The things that brave men have died in battle to win will need to be conserved by the less costly loyalty of other men through the long days of peace that we hope will follow: and that they may not forget how precious those things are, men will wish to see them again with the eyes of the generation that fought and sacrificed for them, will seek to renew in themselves the ideals and to catch once more the spirit of the heroic age in which it has been our privilege to live. And even at this moment of the war's ending, it is well that all who have had a part in gaining the victory should remind themselves of the greater objects for which they have been striving - objects sometimes lost to sight in the stress of the conflict - and should ask themselves what yet remains to be done in order that those objects may be fully accomplished and that the War may bring to mankind benefits worthy of the immeasurable sacrifices which it has demanded. For, great as is the goal already reached, it marks the completion of but the first half of a single task.
