A new era
On April 6th in 1917, the United States of America entered World War I.
Close to two million Americans crossed the Atlantic ocean to fight. Their mission was glorified by propaganda machines which appealed to national pride, honour and glory. But once in combat, the reality of modern, machine-age warfare became apparent. There was not much honour or glory in the veritable butchery - it was a slaughter of human life.
The Armistice ... mehr

The origins of Jazz go back to the discovery of America in 1492. To build up a new existence, the white settlers began with the cruel enslavement of Africans. When black people were taken to the New World they took their traditions and also their music with them, which was very rhythmical and sounded different from the music Europeans and Americans were used to listening to, especially because of its complex harmonic pattern.

Eighty-one years old, she cast her vote p ... mehr
American Literature went through a profound change in the post WWI era. Up until this point, American writers were still expected to use the rigid Victorian styles of the 19th Century. The lost generation writers were above, or apart from, American society, not only in geographic terms, but also in their style of writing and subjects they chose to write about.
Although they were unhappy with American culture, the writers were instrumental in ... mehr
Extremism & Intolerance, Prohibition and organized criminality
A well known example for spreading extremism at that time is the Ku - Klux - Klan. This terrorist organization, which in 1924/25 reached the climax of its negative impact with about 4 - 5 millions of members, now persecuted not only ethic, religious and
marginal groups, even intellectuals, people opposing prohibition and members of several workers' associations were marked men.
Most economists of the 1920s believed that the stock market was the chief indicator of the physical health of the US. In September 1929, stock prices began to fluctuate, but market analysts dismissed this as temporary. They did not realize that stock prices were totally out of proportion to actual profits. Sales of goods and the construction of factories were falling rapidly while stock values continued to climb. Still, very few were worried; the ... mehr
