Henry Cabot Lodge (May 12, 1850 – November 9, 1924) was an American statesman, a Republican politician, and a noted historian.
Henry Lodge opposed President Woodrow Wilson's declaration of war on Germany, and he successfully led a strong majority of isolationists in Congress to overrule Wilson's request for American involvement in the Great War.
- In real life, Henry Cabot Lodge was an avid supporter of American imperialism and U.S. involvement in World War I on the side of the Entente Powers. But due to the Resistance series' alternate history, America became an isolationist state early on when the Spanish-American War was averted in 1898 and this resulted in the sudden change of events which limited America's interest in imperialism. These events subsequently affected Lodge to strongly favor isolationism.
