The Fourteen Points stated by Woodrow Wilson were important for peace and ethics, and used mainly to motivate the Allied forces. The points were highlighted in a speech Woodrow gave to the United States Congress in 1918.
As part of a peace program, the Fourteen Points were compiled by foreign policy experts in the U.S. The points helped to express the participation of the U.S. in World War I. Through the points, the president reassured the citizens of the moral ends the U.S. sought to accomplish by joining the war. The Fourteen Points also served as the foundation of the truce signed between the Allies and the Central Powers.
