ABSTRACT
The author examines the debate over the Ludlow resolution in 1939. He notes that advocates of the Ludlow resolution will not allow any future U.S. Congress to be cajoled into declaring a war and should empower the American people to veto any declaration of war. He cites the argument of journalist, Walter Millis that the Ludlow resolution should also consider a referendum on defending American territory. The author infers that the American people desire the opportunity to vote for or against declaration of war.
