On August 25

On this day in ...
... 1921 (90 years ago today), having failed to ratify the Versailles Treaty that ended conflict for many countries, the United States signed a World War I peace treaty with Germany. In the pact, which the American diplomat Ellis Loring Dresel (right) signed at Berlin, Germany agreed to pay certain reparations to the United States. (photo credit)
