Woodrow Wilson’s Stroke

On October 2, 1919, Edith Wilson found her husband, US President Woodrow Wilson, unconscious on the floor of his private bathroom. The nation spent the next 17 months not knowing Wilson’s condition or prognosis. Woodrow Wilson's stroke changed world policy, our understanding of the presidency, and might even have affected who would be elected the next president.
