Reform from the Progressive Era
UNITED STATES- The term progressive is a type of reform movement. Progressivism made people realize and become aware of the social issues industrialization was causing. A progressive is someone who follows progressivism. An example of progressivism is global warming because our entire life is at risk because of it. The reform poster below shows progressivism. "We will usher in a new progressive era built upon a foundation of social justice and environmental harmony that will create an equal and sustainable society based on empathy and responsibility for self and others in a time of unveiled freedom and prosperity for all." The poster is encouraging others to think we will have a new movement that will create freedom and prosperity for everybody. A new environment with empathy and social justice will take place after this progressive era.Sources- http://faculty.weber.edu/kmackay/reform_progressives.htm

Babe Ruth, Setting Records
NEW YORK- There were many sports playing during the Roaring 20's such as football, tennis, hockey, and boxing. But, baseball was considered the most popular sport during this time. It soon became known as "Americas Pastime". Babe Ruth and the New York Yankees were very popular and were raised to pedestals of heroism. Babe Ruth was a full time outfielder for the Yankees. He was always the one to dominate the game. He set a home-run record of 60. That record stood for 34 years. America used sports to fill their free time in the Roaring 20's.Sources- http://www.slideshare.net/fschiro/roaring-twenties-sports
