The Great Depression all started when the stock market crashed in 1929. People stopped using banks. The dust bowl started. People got employed. People waited in long lines just for bread.
There was a little boy John and his family was living through the Great depression. His mama and papa owned a farm in the valley. John and his sister Carrie had to go to school barefoot during the summer and only got to wear shoes during the winter because they couldn’t buy shoes for the summer because of how poor the Great Depression made them. So every time John and Carrie went to school in the summer they wouldn’t wear shoes and the ground would burn their feet because of how hot the cement would be from the weather. One school when John and Carrie got to school, they got “new” books.
The Great Depression in the United States spurred in 1929 and was the economic deterioration of the United States, where there was a high unemployment rate and many citizens were living in poor conditions.. It was caused because the stock markets and banks failed; and many companies went bankrupt. People were buying on margin so no one had any money to spend and when the stock market crashed, everyone lost their money and spurred the Great Depression. They could not invest in businesses and banks could not loan out money so businesses failed and the economy crashed. During this economic failure, president Herbert Hoover did little to nothing to improve the economic status of the United States.
The dust bowl was the most tragic event for farmers and the rest of the United States. The Dust Bowl negatively affected people in an economic way. The dust bowl made food way overpriced and rare to find fresh crops, and the great depression made the land really cheap. The dust bowl ruined people’s crops and land with the dust bowl big winds and it there was really bad weather in the dust bowl there was flying dust everywhere.
People caused the dust bowl for the many reasons and has been one of the worst disasters happened. I chose option e, because people actions caused the dust bowl. People caused the dust bowl because of all the prairie grass they had ripped up, also because they had a major drought. The gigantic land and great soil had brought many people causing them to make more land and tear up more soil.
If I could choose any topic of history to study, it would be a hard choice between The Great War and The Great Depression. The Great War is the first recorded war. I would like to know the real reason the war started and how it impacted the ones that have come behind it. I would also choose the great depression simply because of the debt that we are currently in. Many people believe that history repeats itself, this makes me wonder if the nation will revert in to such a bad
In the 1920’s, business was booming, normal people were gaining wealth and there was a revolution in the public’s view of women. These advances led the world to believe that life could only get better. When President Hoover was inaugurated he saw a bright future for the country. This belief was sadly only wishful thinking because the next decade experienced woe after woe due to the carelessness of the 1920’s. The Great Depression was caused by multiple issues and many problems arose because of it.
The most significant event in American history that brought tension among different groups particularly class groups was during the great depression. In 1929, when the stock market crashed and many banks closed for the people would be rushing to the banks to get their money out. Many middle class families became irate because everyone (the middle class and lower class) was for the most part money equal. There were several murders and suicide all over money. There were many letters wrote to the Roosevelts asking for help because you could not ask others for help for people’s pride was in the way or others did not have anything to give.
The Great Depression began in 1929, when stocks on the New York Stock Exchange lost half of their value. As stocks continued to fall, businesses began to fail and unemployment rose dramatically. Life savings were lost and banks had failed, leaving many Americans with nothing. All around people began to lose their jobs and homes. Forced to live on the streets and live in shacks.
Between both the great depression and the great recession, we may also see some differences even though both impacted their different time periods of 1929 to 1933 for the great depression and 2007 to 2009 for the great recession. First, you can tell that the great depression lasted double the time of the great recession and is much more talked about in history about how bad it was following World War 1. 50% of banks failed during the great depression, while only 0.6% of banks failed during the great recession. 25% of people were unemployed in the great depression compared to 8.5% of people in the great recession. A decline in Dow Jones industrial averaged about 89.2% in the great depression, while it showed 53.8% for the great recession.
