The decision to erect the monument was made by the Sofia Municipal Council on April 23 this year.

Woodrow Wilson was President of the United States from 1913 to 1921. He remains famous for his famous speech on the 14 points he offers to the League of Nations.

At the peace negotiations in 1919, Woodrow Wilson insisted that White Sea Thrace, Southern Dobrudja and Tsaribrod region remain within the borders of the Kingdom of Bulgaria. With his decisive intervention, he prevented the realization of the huge territorial claims of Serbia, Greece and Romania towards our country, as well as its liquidation as a state and the division of three regions subordinated to its neighbors. Wilson said he would rather leave the conference in Paris than agree to the division of a nation into an independent state and a century-old past.

In 1919, Woodrow Wilson received the Nobel Peace Prize.
