FC: The Great Depression By Leeanna Gotto
1: The Great Depression was caused by a crash in the stock market in 1929. People all over had to wait in lines to get food from the government. Rich people didn't get treated differently even if they had the money to pay the government.

5: Everyone was affected during the Great Depression. Especially families with alot of children.
