Today -100: September 9, 1916: I have come here to fight with you

Woodrow Wilson addresses the national convention of the National American Woman’s Suffrage Association. “I have come here to fight with you,” he says ambiguously.

Theodore Kaftan, head of the Prussian Protestant Church, hopes hundreds of zeppelins will bomb England. For world peace, you know.

Wilson signs a law giving a $20 per month pension to widows of Civil War vets when they reach 70 (sooner if their husband died during the war).
