Food at it's Real Price

"Americans want to pay the cheapest price for their food but they don't understand that it comes at a price." said Eduardo Pena a union organizer. For example the juicy steak or hamburger that one eats. One does not think of how their slab of meat got to their plate beyond their local grocery store. No one thinks of the journey their meat goes through before it gets to their plate. But it's time Americans see the truth about what they eat.

For these reasons stories were written about meat companies. Specifically the book called "The Jungle". A book written about immigrants working in the meatpacking industry in Chicago. It was suppose to show Americans the working conditions but instead showed what goes into their meat. Rat droppings, parts of peoples body's, and the germs of people. The outcome of this book President Theodore Roosevelt and Congress passed the Pure Food and Drug Act. Requiring an accurate labeling of ingredients and a standard for processing food.

Even after the Pure Food and Drug Act was passed this did not solve all the problems. Work was still dangerous, repetitive, exhausting, and low paying. The juicy steak and hamburger one eats at lunch or dinner isn't expensive because the workers are paying the price. How do we stop this? By buying food from a farm or company that provides safe and sanitary conditions, pays well, and does not use illegal immigrants. So how far you willing to go to pay the cheapest price for your food?

Future Americans

Dear future Americans,

I am Alice Paul the head of the National Women Party (NWP). I want to tell you about women's courage and strength through out this time. We were put through a lot just to a vote. First we marched the day of the Presidents iggnageration. African Americans wanted to march mixed in with us. Of course we were hesitant at first. Only because we were worried how the crowd would act since they would already be upset and adding them could add more danger to all of us. The end result was still the same. Violence.

Next we stood out side the White House protesting with signs with words of past Presidents. Along with people yelling at us the weather was not kind to us either. We stood through the the freezing cold, snow, rain, and hard winds. After awhile the police came an arrested us. They took us to court and sent us to the Occquan Workhouse. Even though we did not break any laws. When we refused to eat they forced fed us. Shoving tubes down our throats and put raw eggs down it. Resulting in us getting bloody noses. When I wrote a note and that note got out about what was happening to us it got published. As a result they let us go. The day came where it was time to vote on women's suffrage. The day every women was waiting for. Then we got a call saying that it passed! Women were finally able to vote after so many years. So one thing I ask of you is to not take it for granted and vote!

Funny Little Government

Rockefeller is holding the White House and the President in the palm of his hand. While the state capital is in the background with smoke coming out of it. There is also oil barrels in the background. Which represents Rockefeller because he owns an oil company. Rockefeller stands for big companies such as himself. This shows that big companies control the government. Manipulate the government to get out of trouble and get what they want.

Spain's Outrages Attacks

Just a few days before these outrages attacks we received a telegram form Remington saying: "W.R. Hearst, New York Journal, N.Y.: Everything is quiet here, but afraid some trouble is sturing up. I'm sad to say that there might be a war. I wish to return before it's to late. Remington." Then Hurst answered: "Remington, Havana: Please remain. You furnish the pictures, and I'll furnish the war. W.R. Hearst." Once we got a hold of Remington's telegram we knew we had to go to war. McKinley was reluctant at first to get involved in the conflict. Soon events changed and McKinley changed his mind. Such as the de Lome letter. It precluded McKinley for being "weak and catering to the rabble." This made us very furious and we began clamoring for war. Then tragedy struck in Havana Harbor. The battleship USS Main had been blown up. The ship we sent over to protect American lives and property. "Remember the Main!" shall now be our rally cry. Spain has pushed us way to far. War has now be gone.

Our Food Is Fighting

Gave Americans an opportunity to help assist with the war efforts. Were encouraged to grow their own vegetable gardens in their backyards, churchyards, city parks, and playgrounds. That way more food could go towards the war.


Peace Without Victory

President Wilson has traveled to Paris to have a conference to find peace. They have come up with the plan to find peace called Fourteen Points. The Fourteen Points calls for open diplomacy, fair system to resolve disputes, self-determination(right of people to decide their own political status), and the the League of Nations(prevent future wars). While at the peace conference they had established the Big Four( British Prime Minister David Lloyd George, French Premier George Clemenceau, Italian Prime Minister Vittorio Orlando, and US President Wilson). Reaching an agreement the Allies presented the Treaty of Versailles to Germany. This was signed on June 28, 1919. The Treat of Versailles said that Germany had to claim the blame for the war, had to remove military from the Rhineland, and had to make reparations(payments for damages).

When Wilson presented the treaty to the Senate it divided into Democrats and irreconcilable. and reservationists. Democrats supported the treaty, irreconcilable rejected the treaty, and reservationists who would ratify the treaty. So Wilson had to compromise with the Senate and they rejected the treaty. But the impact of the war still had important implications. The Monarchies in Russia, Austria-Hungary, Germany, and the Ottoman Empire were overthrown. While US enjoyed the economic prosperity European economics were devastated. New population patterns led to uneasy race relations. WW1 didn't leave on a good note. It left unsolved hostility, anger, and conflict for the future.
