Hooverville History

Big image
Hoovervilles are small shanty towns, located on the outskirts of cities, according to History.com. These common and, at the time, growing houses were ironically named after President Hoover, who was highly blamed for the depression. Even though he had the chance, he didn't help the citizens that were in debt, or even those who had starving children.

By a Landslide!

Roosevelt, who at the time was a governor, was in the lead. In the month of November, he won against Hoover by a landslide. I don't know why, I mean, Hoover only sent an army to veterans who didn't pay, then went on strike! He seemed like a pretty reasonable guy. But, as promised, President Roosevelt started filling dirt into the deep hole of debt Hoover left behind. What really sped this process up, was the start of WWII, which eventually pulled America out of the worst depression in history.
