At the start of the 20th century the nation was at a critical turning point. During the twenty years from 1900 to 1920 technological, political, economic, and social developments transformed the country in ways that still affect us today. Select one reason why these were “pivotal decades” and analyze the events associated with its historical significance. Provide support for your opinion, using information from a scholarly source. Also, incorporate and cite in APA format one of the primary sources in your response that you found in the textbook.
If asked to name one of the most troubling years in American history few would select 1919. Many think that after World War I, the “war to end all wars,” the United States was a peaceful and prosperous place because the hostilities ended. This was far from the truth. Identify one reason that 1919 was a year of a “savage peace,” and provide a supporting explanation. Describe the short and long term impacts this reason had on the nation. Then analyze your selection for its historical significance.
