I remember reading a thread here about someone talking about Germany warning the US to stay away from the waters prior to America joining WW1. Does anyone remember this thread? I thought the Lusitania was coming from England, does anyone have the thread so I can research it better? Thanks

The sinking of the Lusitania was in 1915, the United States did not official enter the war until 1917. Before the sinking of the Lusitania Germany did announce they would use unrestricted warfare against shipping in the Atlantic. Following the sinking, and the outcry of Wilson, was when the Germans stopped unrestricted warfare. It was not until 1917 when they restarted because they believed they could starve England and then easily win the war.

Contrary to popular belief, the Lusitania had really nothing to do with why the United States went to war.
