convinced that the League of Nations would prevent future wars when he
left for the U.S. following the signing of the Treaty of Versailles,

Convinced that Americans would rally to his position, he traveled the
country by train, only to suffer a stroke. Wilson's main difficulties
came from a group of senators called the Irreconcilables, who opposed
any U.S. involvement in an international league. In fact, a group of American soldiers were sent to northern Russia in an attempt to build support for a non-communist force to oppose the new Soviet government. The forces were withdrawn in 1919.
