  • Fashionable 1920's Female Body
    1,705 words
    The 1920's, a period that saw dramatic changes in dress, was perhaps the first modern decade of the twentieth century. The corseted woman of the previous decade, with her hobble skirts and huge hats, looked as if she came from another world when compared to the modern woman of the 1920's. The result was extreme. Fashionable 1920's female body evolved from the elaborately trimmed dress with its high waist position and ankle length skirt at the beginning, to the simple, hardly decorated, shapeless...

    756 words
    The Roaring Twenties The decade of 1920-1929 was a time of great change, reform, improvement, adjustment and alteration of everything Americans had come to rely on. In other words everything changed. Not one part of common life was unaffected. Exciting new events happened in sports, entertainment, science, politics, communication and transportation. It was the age of prohibition, it was the age of prosperity, and it was the age of downfall. The twenties were the age of everything. It has been ca...
  • Decade Of The 1920's
    3,716 words
    The Year Was 1925 By The decade of the 1920's has been given a lot of nicknames. Some of these names have been the Jazz Age and the Era of Isolationism. Perhaps the most accurate name for this decade was the Roaring Twenties. And that is exactly what the decade of the 1920's was all about. It was a time characterized on one side by a search for safety, religious certainty, business capitalism, and patriotic commitment. On the other side was the increasing appeal of the modern: new technology, co...
  • Rise Of The Ku Klux Klan
    460 words
    The first decade of the 1920's is often characterized as a period of American prosperity and optimism. It was the "Roaring Twenties", the decade of bath tub gin, the model T, the $5 work day, the first transatlantic flight, and the movie. It is often seen as a period of great advance as the nation became urban and commercial (Calvin Coolidge declared that America's business was business). The decade is also seen as a period of rising intolerance and isolation: chastened by the first world war, h...
  • African Americans During The Decade
    1,540 words
    'The Roaring Twenties' was a time of change, a boom for economy and unprecedented prosperity. The decade following the First World War had it all. It was a decade where transport, technology, communication and entertainment grew. It was also a time when women had more liberation. However, the label 'The Roaring Twenties' is only appropriate to some certain extent. Not everyone benefited from the boom, this included African Americans, farmers, migrants and those employed in old industries. Prohib...
  • America In The 1920's
    833 words
    The United States of America entered something of a golden age in the 1920's. Compared to most of Europe, America has hardly suffered at all in the Great War. Although about four million men were drafted into the armed forces and an American Expeditionary Force (AEF) of over 1.2 million was sent to Europe the United States troops only had to endure a few months of war before the armistice was signed. After the war the United States rose in international power politically and economically with it...
