Assignment: The Influence Of Mid-20th Century American Politics
As you read, the political actions of policymakers of the United States charted the nation's course through the prosperity of the 1920s, the great economic decline of the 1930s, the industrial rebirth spurred on by mobilization in during World War II, and a rebound to financial affluence in the 1950s and 1960s. Although there were many struggles for the United States to achieve growth, the Presidents and political parties pushed legislation to move America forwards in terms of economic and social health.
For this essay, choose one political event between the 1920s and the 1960s that you believe was a turning point for the nation. The political turning point must demonstrate that without legislative action, the country would suffer economic or social decline. Think about how certain groups benefited or lost some power due to this change in policy. You must be able to develop a strong argument, write a clear thesis, and support your work with citations and analysis from primary and secondary sources.
Examples of political events include Big Business Policies of the 1920s, parts of the New Deal, the GI Bill, the Red Scare/McCarthyism, Policies against Communism, Promotion of Minorities, Brown vs. The Board of Education, etc.
