Henry Cabot "Slim" Lodge (May 12, 1850 – November 9, 1924) was an American Republican politician from Massachusetts. He served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1887-1893 and then in the U.S. Senate from 1893-1924. Lodge is usually credited as the first (albeit unofficial) Republican Senate Majority leader, serving from 1920-1924. Lodge is probably best remembered for his conservative politics and for his conflict with President Woodrow Wilson over the Treaty of Versailles. While both men did favor the Treaty overall, Lodge's opposition to Article X, which Lodge believed would require the U.S. to wage war without a vote in Congress, collided with Wilson's refusal to amend the treaty at all.

Henry Cabot Lodge in Southern VictoryEdit

Henry Cabot Lodge was a Democratic Senator from Massachusetts, who was perceived as President Theodore Roosevelt's surrogate in the Senate. In early 1915, in response to statements made by Socialist Senator Eugene V. Debs criticizing Roosevelt for the casualities of the Great War up to the point, Lodge reminded the Senate (and the country) that Debs himself had voted for the war the previous August.[1]
