He never gave up on anything he was trying to do. His last years of his life were dedicated to convincing the U.S. to join his League of Nations.
Woodrow Wilson was born December 28, 1856. Through his childhood he was often sick. This did not keep him from building an interest in education. His father and him would read out loud to each other and discuss the books. If they were not reading often the two would sit and talk about recent events.
