    This event changed the course of history as it had many bad impacts to people’s lifes (especially the children). The children had a hard life. Some got adopted while most dis not.

    The causes that brought about this change were –

    1. Patriotism

    3. When the Central Powers were going to lose, they ordered all the men to go to war to keep on going as long as they could. This meant that more people had to go to fight.

    Central Powers – We are going to lose. Somehow, we have to keep on going.

    People were killed and many lost there homes. World War 1 was one of the most violent wars of all. More weapons and technology was introduced at that time.
    Change the course of history
    This changed the course of history as it made the children surviving have a hard life.
    World War I started when the nations went to war to avenge the assassination of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand, the heir to the Habsburg throne.
    America- “Finally we ended the war.”
    People- “Yeah Yeah the war has ended Yeah.”

    The change of this was that before people use the method fighting instead of talking and wars happend but now we do not have wars. It changed the course of history by that in wars people invent many things that are useful for now. That cause people to use the some bad inventions. The perspective of who died might be super sad and the perspective of the winner in the war might cheer for themsleves.
