This Day in History:  1919 – Some of the most powerful people in the world at the time meet in Paris, France to begin the process of negotiating and drafting the Treaty of Versailles, the document that would end World War I.


Fact of the Day:   Ironically, the Treaty of Versailles was so punitive towards Germany that the anger and resentment festered in Germany, giving rise to Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party.  Meaning the document that would end World War I essentially caused World War II.
