A look up of the time line of American involvement in war lists nothing between 1898 and 1914 when WWI broke out. Wilson was elected President in 1912 and did not declare war against Germany until 1917, well into his fifth year in office as a two term President. Wilson was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1919 for his efforts to end WWI and form the League of Nations, after personally taking upon himself armistice talks with Germany.
Yeah sure... official history for you. And what about the Philippine-American war of 1989-1902+10?
