In this quarter the most important thing that I learned would be learning all about the first World War. I think that this is the most important because it is a huge piece of our country's history. I think that many Americans know very little about World War 1 and to me it is something everyone should know very much about. In this short essay I will discuss why I think learning about World War One is the most important thing I have learned thus far this quarter.
I think that World War One is so important for many reasons. First of all, it was an extremely bloody and deadly war. It was not what many thought it would be. Many stated that it would end in a couple months and it would be easy to end. I think that this is why its so important to know wars like this. It did not go as they expected as many wars usually do, it lasted for years rather than the predicted months, and an extreme amount of people were killed. It is important to understand that basically an entire generation of young men were wiped out in this war.
This is why I think that World War One is so important. I think that to look back and understand the wars our country has endured is one of the most prosperous things that our country can do. Why? Wars always happen, they are something that will most likely never go away. To understand World War One is so important because it teaches us so many lessons. This is why I think that learning about World War One is the most important thing I have learned this quarter.
