What Terrible Terrible Things!
A Closer Look
Have you ever wondered what living inside the homes of immigrants may look like?
Immigrants live in small crowded homes filled with mounts of trash. More then 6 people lived in each home. Usually each home was no bigger then the size of a one bedroom apartment. Thanks to "Muckrakers" pictures of the scenes have been leaked to the public.
Other issues that have been exposed are work conditions for children. Children are being forced to work in small factories and have low pay. Often injured in the factory, they also do not attend school, and become sick from terrible conditions of the factories.
(See pictures below)
Young boys are forced to work in factories for long hours each day without education.
Young girls work in factories producing dresses and winding string from cotton
Children protest against work and beg for more school.
Political Campaigns are a difficult time for the public with the trouble of William H. Taft, Theodore Roosevelt, and Harding Coolidge. Campaigns ran tough and votes came at strange amounts for the future presidents.
William Taft, was once in line with Theodore Roosevelt, ran for congress and became president, Coolidge, after serving for a term after a president died, he decided to run for a second term. Roosevelt, became president and soon after his term was over he took Taft under his wing.
Did You See What We Saw?
What would you think if you heard about Americans being killed?
Well here's a story you should hear!
Germany, as in the great war with the United Kingdom, sunk the Lusitania. Outraged the Americans have started to go against Germany and are demanding the President take action. Rumors are true! Germany is accused of sinking our ship because of our American's that were aboard. Over 100 of fellow Americans died in this tragic incident.
Know Your Place, Shut Your Face!
Well, get use to them!
These posters are telling you warnings, our enemies are listening, so keep your traps shut! New regulations are up, and we must stop the talk about ship movements and troop locations, this talk could cause the lost of lives.
The government created the posters to alert the public.
So please be caring of lives and stop the talk!
The women of America have started protest and began begging for Women's Suffrage, they beg for the right to vote, the right to work, and the right to live how they want to. Officials have already arrested several Women, including the Suffrage leaders Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. The arrests will be continued until further said.
Arts and Entertainment
In the new late night clubs, young women dance, as you may have heard of "flappers", they are a new type of entertainment. They are very neat dancers, although we are not use to irregular clothes, these young ladies defiantly hit it off by wearing short dresses with tassels, feathers on their head, and make up. These modern women express themselves through up beat music and dances. Go visit one of the clubs soon!
Rest In Peace.
