The aim of this paper is to systematize the available material on the role played by Austria-Hungary in America’s entry into the Great War. Particular focus is placed on the part Hungary played, as well as the situation of the Hungarian immigrants living in the United States during this time period (1914–1918), and to what extent their lives were affected during these years. The research utilizes a wide range of secondary sources, as well as contemporary articles from American and Hungarian newspapers, and, to some degree, primary sources also. The federal government and major leaders such as Theodore Roosevelt were concerned with the insidious acts of the German and Ottoman Empires, but they were much less anti-Austrian or anti-Hungarian which is intriguing given the fact that the war was in effect instigated by Austria-Hungary. This paper examines this question in detail by analyzing the events leading up to April, 1917, investigating the involvement of Hungarians in American aggression, and discussing the social backlash such actions provoked.
