5: what life was like during the great depression was really difficult. The average man was unable to pay off his debts, so they had no other choice to start borrowing money from banks which started to cause banks to go under as well. Panic stream from the crash forced people to pull more money out of banks and the more the panic grew more and more banks fell. As people lost their jobs, they were unable to keep up with paying for items they had bought from installment plans and their items were repossessed.

9: The suffering American economy was given a boost when the Fighting countries needed supplies and looked to America to take them. After the Pear HArbor was bombed the 7th of December 1941, American entered the war. The U.S enlisted many men and women into the military and because the U.S did so, it was left for those left back at home to work in the factories to make supplies for the war effort. The desperate need for soldiers, pilots ,and workers to make weaponry, ammunition, etc all contributed to the end of the Great Depression.
