The Espionage Act of 1917 prohibited any means to attempt to interfere with military operations or interfere with the military in any way, or support U.S. enemies during the war. The Sedition Act of 1918 extended the Espionage Act to cover more offenses, such as the freedom to express their opinion on the government or war effort in a negative way. With such acts, you were not allowed to support opposing war efforts or speak or do anything about opposing the war.
