Roaring 20’s, Great Depression, & World War II: 1918-1945

The Roaring Twenties Era was a time of pushing the limits in social culture, but the fun and extravagance came to an abrupt end in 1929 with the stock market crash and the start of the Great Depression. The depression tested the endurance of the American people; dust storms, limited work, and lost fortunes brought dark days. Government programs increased in an attempt to remedy the situation. In Asia and Europe World War II began and in 1941, after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States joined the Allies and became a key force in the military offensives for victory.
