Causes of US Entering WWI Lesson Plan

I am engrossed in Erik Laroson's new book Dead Wake which looks at the last voyage of the Lusitania including the view from U20, which sunk it as well as the decoders who knew that there was a great possibility that the Lusitania was going to be sunk.  In one very vivid scene, Larson describes the Lusitania leaving port which you can see above.  I think showing a brief part of this video brings the sinking alive to your students as does showing the Zimmerman Telegraph (here is a lesson plan developed around it).
