Treasures in The Attic
Project By: Annabella Wells
As I was looking among my bookshelf... I saw this book. It seemed older, and different than the rest. It was black with a weird emblem. It was falling apart with the pages all wrinkled. I had, to find more out about it. The Lord of the Rings is written by an English scholar. It was written in parts in 1930's and 1940's during World War II, and over fifteen million copies have been sold. It was written by J.R.R Tolkien, it was published of the course of a year from July 29th, 1954 to October 1955. I have had the book in the family, and the pages are falling apart.
Life in the U.S.
World War II started by an attack on Poland. Soon after that Germany had been overturned by the Nazis. At first, the British were the only ones to fight back. The U.S. did not help in the war until Japan bombed Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, the largest U.S. naval base. American factories put out war supplies, the U.S economy again boomed. In May 1945 Americans danced in the streets when the war in Europe ended with Germany's surrender.
