FC: The Great Depression | By: Emily Molison

1: One of the largest causes of the Great Depression was that when the market crashed and the Country went into a widespread financial panic, other causes included large war debts, unequal spread of wealth, and over production...

2: This Great Depression was not over quickly either; It started in the year of 1929(The stock Market Crashed), and went on until about the year 1941(The U.S. entered WW2).

8: The Great Depression finally began to come to an end when Franklin D. Roosevelt won the presidency. He immediately went straight to work after he was elected by shutting down the banks so that they could stabilize and re-open.

Men had to train for war, women had to run the factories, farmers had to grow twice as many vegetables because they needed to be sent overseas to the men. This all created a National effort which led to the America's improved economic state, and the freedom from the Great Depression!
