One of the provisions of the Treaty of Versailles set up a League of Nations to serve as an international unit and help prevent another world war. In Wilson's 14 points, he outlined provisions for peace in Europe. One of the provisions was to set up a League of Nations. When he brought his 14 points to Europe, they were very well received, and he came back from the Paris peace talks expecting the US government to agree with his ideas. Senator Henry Cabot Lodge was the senate majority leader, and he opposed Wilson's 14 Points- he was the leader of the group opposed to signing the Treaty of Versailles. Because of the conflict, the United States actually never ended up joining the League of Nations.
