The Roaring 20s


The roaring 20s

The roaring 20s was an economic boom period that had a positive effect on the daily lives of many ( but not all Americans). New technologies such as the automobile, airplanes, radios, and new appliances improved peoples' lives. However , some such as sharecroppers, farmers, and underpaid factory workers were not able to enjoy this rising standard of living.


Prohibition is a complete ban on alcohol. Many citizens in America were upset about this and many did something about it. Bootleggers made illegal alcohol and sold it to those upset citizens. Some people did wood alcohol and it was simalar to poison. Others went to secret bars.
