WWI HAS BEGUN!!!

Brief description of WWI
World War I began on July 28, 1914, when Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia. This seemingly small conflict between two countries spread rapidly: soon, Germany, Russia, Great Britain, and France were all drawn into the war, largely because they were involved in treaties that obligated them to defend certain other nations. Western and eastern fronts quickly opened along the borders of Germany and Austria-Hungary
We made an alliance with Russia, France, and Britain
FDR- During the war FDR worked to aid the British army because Britain was at constant war with the Germans
The Soldiers Journey
Soldiers traveled long distances with little to no food or water
Many soldiers died from wound or most desieses
Men lined up to be a part of the fight
The Great Depression
FDR pulls us out
Over the next eight years, the government instituted a series of experimental projects and programs, known collectively as the New Deal, that aimed to restore some measure of dignity and prosperity to many Americans. More than that, Roosevelt’s New Deal permanently changed the federal government’s relationship to the U.S. populace.
The dust bowl
The New Deal
Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945) was the 32nd President of the United States and the only chief executive to be elected to more than two terms in office. Roosevelt held the presidency from 1934-1945, leading the United States through the Great Depression and World War II. His legislative program, the New Deal, greatly expanded the role of the federal government in American society.
Adolf Hitler is a key person
