Encyclopedia > United States Senate election, 1918

The 1918 U.S. Senate election occurred on November 5, coinciding with the midpoint of Woodrow Wilson's second term as President of the United States. The Republican Party gained control, resulting in a 2 seat majority, by picking up five seats. Second term mid term elections generally result in the party out of the presidency gaining seats, though seldom in changing control of the Senate. The change in control was particularly important, since it meant that the Republicans were in a position to deny entry of the United States into the League of Nations which Woodrow Wilson supported. Thomas Woodrow Wilson (December 28, 1856 – February 3, 1924) was the 28th President of the United States. ... The presidential seal was used by President Hayes in 1880 and last modified in 1959 by adding the 50th star for Hawaii. ... The League of Nations was a international organization founded after the Paris Peace Conference, 1919. ...
