Warren Gamaliel Harding

Warren Gamaliel Harding (November 2, 1865 – August 2, 1923) was the 29th President of the United States, serving from March 4, 1921 until his death. Although Harding died one of the most popular presidents in history, the subsequent exposure of scandals that took place under him, such as Teapot Dome, eroded his popular regard, as did revelations of an affair by Nan Britton, one of his mistresses. In historical rankings of the U.S. presidents, Harding is often rated among the worst.

Teapot Dome scandal

United States from 1921 to 1922, during the administration of President Warren G. Harding. Secretary of the Interior Albert Bacon Fall had leased Navypetroleum reserves at Teapot Dome in Wyoming and two other locations in Californiato private oil companies at low rates without competitive bidding. In 1922 and 1923, the leases became the subject of a sensational investigation by Senator Thomas J. Walsh. Fall was later convicted of accepting bribes from the oil companies and became the first Cabinet member to go to prison. No person was ever convicted of paying a bribe, however.

Schenck vs. United States

Schenck vs. United States

In Schenck v. United States (1919), the Supreme Court invented the famous "clear and present danger" test to determine when a state could constitutionally limit an individual's free speech rights under the First Amendment. In reviewing the conviction of a man charged with distributing provocative flyers to draftees of World War I, the Court asserted that, in certain contexts, words can create a "clear and present danger" that Congress may constitutionally prohibit.

Scopes Monkey Trial

John Thomas

John Thomas Scopes came to Tennessee fresh out of college. In the spring of 1925, he had just completed his first year as science teacher and part-time football coach at the high school in the little town of Dayton. Scopes planned to return home to Kentucky for the summer. But in his words, "a beautiful blonde" distracted him and he stayed for another week hoping for a date. The decision changed his life forever.

It all began when the state of Tennessee passed a law making it a crime to teach evolution in public schools. A new organization called the American Civil Liberties Union responded immediately. The ACLU placed an ad inviting a teacher to help test the law in the courts. Dayton was in an economic slump, and the town's movers and shakers thought a sensational trial would put Dayton "on the map."

Clarence Darrow

Clarence Seward Darrow (April 18, 1857 – March 13, 1938) was an American lawyer, leading member of the American Civil Liberties Union, and prominent advocate for Georgist economic reform. He was best known for defending teenage thrill killers Leopold and Loeb in their trial for murdering 14-year-old Robert "Bobby" Franks (1924). Some of his other notable cases included defending Ossian Sweet, and John T. Scopes in the Scopes "Monkey" Trial (1925), in which he opposed William Jennings Bryan (statesman, noted orator, and three-time presidential candidate).

William Jennings Bryan

William Jennings Bryan (March 19, 1860 – July 26, 1925) was an American orator and politician from Nebraska, and a dominant force in the populist wing of the Democratic Party, standing three times as the Party's candidate for President of the United States (1896, 1900 and 1908).

Innovations, Innovators & Culture

Jazz era

The Jazz Age was a period in the 1920s, ending with the Great Depression, in which jazzmusic and dance styles became popular, mainly in the United States, but also in Britain, France and elsewhere. Jazz originated in New Orleans as a fusion of African and European music and played a significant part in wider cultural changes in this period, and its influence on pop culture continued long afterwards. The Jazz Age is often referred to in conjunction with the Roaring Twenties.

As in the art world, literary creatively soared throughout the 1920s. The overly formal styles associated with Victorianism were replaced with a more direct, democratic style. In literary circles, disillusionment following World War I caused some writers to focus on the horror and futility of war. Other common themes in 1920s literature included sexuality and the human capacity to seek pleasure and happiness

But farming did not do well in the 1920s. US agriculture had expanded during the First World War to sell food to Europe, but afterwards countries returned to growing their own a grain. The expansion had led to over-production and now there was too much food on the market. Farmers found it more and more difficult to sell their produce.

Return of the KKK targeted those set free after the American Civil War with the African Americans. They were famous for the acts that white Americans did to the black Americans and ordering his troops to massacre many African Americans. This is a representation for 1920's because it showed social and political concerns. Lasting impact it had on the future was Sacco and Vanzetti were Italian Anarchists who were convicted of murdering two men during an armed robbery. This represented a xenophobic nation, it brought controversy as to whether or not the trails were fair with the dispute forcing on contradictory evidence. The lasting impact that they made on the 20's were that there trail was full of betrayal of american ideals.Al Capone was an American Gangster who led a Prohibition-Era crime syndicate. He is a representation of the 20's because Alcohol was banned that time and he was providing illegal alcohol during the prohibition. His lasting impact on the future was that he was one of the reasons why alcohol banned was repealed also he was the first American citizen, where taxes were used to as an entrapment to incarcerate him.

political cartoon & analysis


This cartoon concerns the 1920 Presidential election. In the late summer of 1920, the Presidential contest between Democratic nominee James M. Cox and Republican nominee Warren G. Harding was beginning to intensify. However, the dominant news story was not the campaign--it was baseball sensation Babe Ruth's unstoppable first season with the New York Yankees. In this cartoon both Presidential candidates are shown pondering Ruth's secret of success, though the White House is their "real home plate." Harding hit a "home run" in the November elections and beat Cox by a landslide.
