When Woodrow Wilson ran for reelection in 1916, he did so with the slogan “He Kept Us Out of War.” In 1917, when U.S. entry into the First World War seemed inevitable, Wilson faced the enormous task of convincing the American people to support the war efforts. He turned to George Creel, who headed up the Committee on Public Information, and launched a massive propaganda campaign to sell the war.
