Quote of the Day:  "For God and Country.  Geronimo! Geronimo! Geronimo!" The words of the US Navy Seal commander who radioed back to the situation room in the White House as Bin Laden was killed.  Geronimo was the code name for the kill or capture of Bin Laden.

Learning Targets:
Targets Chapter 23 - World War I

• Allied forces finally defeated Germany at the Second Battle of the Marne but would not make peace with the German emperor. In the face of upheaval, William II fled Germany. Social Democrats then formed a democratic republic, which signed an armistice with the Allies and crushed a Communist attempt to seize power. 
• The Austro-Hungarian Empire dissolved into four separate states. U.S. President Woodrow Wilson sought to pave the way for a just and lasting peace by creating the League of Nations and suggested the 14 Points. However, the Treaty of Versailles imposed harsh penalties on Germany. 
• The war settlements redrew the map of Europe and dissolved the Ottoman Empire. Ignoring promises made during the war, France and Britain took control of several Arab states (mandates). Despite the principle of self-determination, many Eastern European states included large ethnic minorities, setting the stage for later conflicts.

1. The End of World War I.  Notes and discussion.
2. Review game and oral quiz to prepare for the test on Friday.
