About nativism in the 1920's

Nativism is the policy of protecting the interests of native-born inhabitants against those of immigrants. Nativism resurfaced in the 1920's after the first world war. Because world war 1 created so much destruction, many immigrants wanted to come to America so they could escape the ruin. The Ku Klux Klan was cult/ hate group that was known for having radical beliefs about the immigrants, blacks, Jews and any other race that was out of place in America. Three laws that were against immigration were, Immigration act of 1924, National Origins Act, and Chinese exclusion Act.


Warren G Harding was the 29th president of the United States. During his time in office many scandals happened. The most well known was the Teapot Dome scandal. In Wyoming there is a former U.S navy oil reserve, with Harding's consent, it was secretly leased out to a private oil company which was used as a bribe.

*In 1928 the government came to an agreement in which signatory states promised not to use war to resolve disputes. This was called the Kellog Briand Pact.

Aviation, Jazz Age and the Flappers

The aviation industry really took off after the first World War. The planes were heavy duty and were much more reliable. This influenced commercial flights.

The Jazz age started post World War 1 and lasted all the way up to the great depression. This style originated in New Orleans. Some famous figures from this era were: Josephine Baker, Charlie Chaplin and many others.

During the Jazz age, a lot of changes happened. Especially for women. After World War 1, woman gained the right to vote. During this time they became more free and less restricted. The style of Flappers came into play. Flappers were women who were fashionable, and ignored the typical standards for women. They liked to dance, drink and smoke and often wore loose fitting clothes that helped mimic a boyish figure.

A letter to the editor

Dear editor,

I am writing about the Monkey Scopes trial. Was John Scopes really guilty?

Political cartoon on Women's suffrage.

The cartoonist uses labeling on the dress to signify the womans suffrage movement. The Artist also uses irony because even though the woman were able to vote after this movement, they were still not given complete equal rights.
