FC: The Great Depression
1: The Great Depression was caused by people and their waste of money. Oftentimes, people would borrow money and use it to play in the stock markets. When we had the crash, people ran for their money, that wasn't there. This depression lasted for about 12 years, before things got better.
2: People would stand in long food lines just to wait for the chance of eating food. Oftentimes, they would be turned away if they joined the line too late or if all of the food had been taken.
4: Many people lost their jobs due to the stock market crash.
6: Many people also lost their homes due to the Great Depression. It wasn't uncommon to see such a sign as the one above, or a sight such as the one below.
8: As everyone lost their homes, they would have to move elsewhere. Probably to a Hooverville, or something of the sorts.
9: Everybody was effected by the Great Depression and there was no way to escape it. | Life was pure poverty during the depression. Nobody had much of anything, and coudln't pay for anything either.
10: Herbert Hoover was the President during the Great Depression and was often blamed for it.
12: The Dust Bowl was during the Great Depression. Their was a couple years of drought and the topsoil became loose and blew around.
13: The Great Depression was ended near the end of 1936. WWII and the F. Roosevelt's New Deal helped bring us out of it because we needed people to be working when everybody else was out at war. I would personally like to think that it truly ended, but knowing that it might happen again soon, and have it be even worse, is quite scary.
