FC: The Great Depression by Chantal Braziel

1: The Great Depression was an event that happened during the 1920's and the1930's. It had affected everyone throughout the United States. It all started when the stock market began to crash in 1929, and businesses had lost a whole lot of money, making a great affect on U.S. citizens. People began to panic over financial losses and had lost industry and agriculture.

2: Economy began to decrease | It was hard to keep jobs.

3: The Great Depression lasted from 1930 until 1939. As the economy decreased, people have lost their jobs; many banks had failed and lost money. This event seemed to last a long time; many people feared that it might not end and they couldn't do much of anything without money. People began to suffer over high tariffs and war debts, unequal distribution of wealth, and unemployment.

5: Fr | During the Great Depression | During The Great Depression, people have suffered amounts of losses that had affected towns, cities, and states around all of America. It was hard to find and get a job since many people were unemployed; they had little food since they did not have enough money to buy what they needed. People couldn't take care of their families by providing them food, water, clothes, or any other supplies; this caused anger, stress, and mainly depression. Women couldn't provide their children with a lot of food, and others had to fight for their lives. Also, many people lost their life savings because they didn't trust banks.

7: Men, women, and even children of all races, religion, and background had suffered during the Great Depression. Since banks had lost money and businesses were closed, men couldn't afford getting a job and providing for themselves or their families. Since women were low on money to make food and take care of their children, they had to plant in gardens, although some of them had jobs. Some men even left their families during the Great Depression, leaving women and children to provide for themselves. Children between ages 10-18 had to leave their schools and work in factories, mines, and farms in order to support their families by paying meager wages.

9: After many years of loss, desperation, and suffering, The Great Depression had finally come to an end, all because of World War 2 had begun. The spending of this war had made a good recovery from the Depression; it helped stimulate the economies of Europe in 1937-1939. After the Great Depression ended, things began to look up; money came back in stock in banks again and people have gained their jobs back and some even got new jobs. People could now be employed, provide for their families, and have a good life again.
