Fiery speech draft at the height of WWI, hand-annotated by President Woodrow Wilson who would deliver the speech on July 4, 1918. This ''Four Minute'' speech was made by Wilson on Independence Day as part of a series of speeches four minutes in length that ran between reels at movie theatres. Wilson makes several corrections to the speech in pencil, inserting words and crossing others out. It reads in part, ''...with all its ancient cruelty and injustice, military autocracy has again armed itself against the pacific hopes of men. Having suppressed self-government among its own people, by an organization maintained in part by falsehood and treachery, it has set out to impose its will upon its neighbors and us...We find ourselves fighting again for our national existence...'' Two page speech is mounted to board measuring 14.75'' x 11''. Chip to upper left of board, overall very good condition. Accompanied by the final version of the speech, typed and with a printed signature by Wilson.
