By the turn of the 20th century, the population of the United States was rapidly diversifying. Millions of immigrants from around the world, the majority from southern and eastern Europe, flocked to economic opportunities in American cities. At the same time, war had erupted across Europe in 1914 when the Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated in Sarajevo. While at first hesitant to intervene, the United States eventually joined its French and British allies in 1917. President Woodrow Wilson, who had been reelected in 1916 on an antiwar platform, now declared that America was fighting to "make the world safe for democracy" by opposing the authoritarian German Empire, which seemed bent on world domination.
