Can Food Be This Dangerous?

What deciding what to eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just a snack we shouldn't have to be wondering if its clean or sanitary enough to eat. People started wondering why they were getting sick so often, and what they didn't know was that they were eating unsanitary meats. This uncleanliness was coming from the meat packers that were not washing their hands after they went to the bathroom and did other things other than packing the meat.

They would pack spoiled meat and send it off to stores, and would think that it was perfectly fine. This is why we have to take action of having clean people pack, process and transport are meat so that we don't keep getting sick like other people. Because of this we take extra precautions when hiring people that will be touching food that other people will be eating to make sure they don't have a contagious disease and so they are clean.

Dear Future Americans...

December 20, 1919

Dear Future Americans,

My name is Alice Paul and I worked for the Women's Suffrage Association. I helped women get their right to freedom and justice, by giving them the ability to vote and helping their wages increase and get them out of the harsh working conditions that are laid upon them. To do this I went through some hard things like hunger strikes and going to prison for speaking my word.

While our campaign for women's justice was going on we had many acts of courage that we had to do. In order for our vote to get passed we had to get the presidents attention, because he was the one that passed the votes. in addition to that we had to tell people about what we were trying to do. We had to go around to random people and tell them we were from the Women's Suffrage Association and if they would cast their vote for us and the women. After many tough try's our vote finally went through and women would finally be granted freedom and justice.

A Common American Social Problem

This picture shows the tough working conditions that many facilities had. It shows that women and children were this way. Many people were left shoe less and had little resources like water so many were dehydrated from so much work. Their was also a leader that informed them of what to do and if they did not accomplish this in a certain period of time then they would be punished mainly by a whip. Along with this they would get payed very little and have to work extra long weeks. Many people wanted to change his a lower the work week and increase wages but companies wanted it to stay the same because it was easiest on them. What they didn't know was that there workers were dreading to come to work. This caused people to be tired and not being able to work as hard and after that businesses would fail.

The Unknown Uproar

On February 15, 1898 the mane of a ship blew up in the Havana Harbor. It was the USS Maine and was there to protect the American property and their lives. Killing 260 sailors, the explosion caused an uproar by the American people. Immediately people blamed Spain for the explosion. Soon after it was discovered that a fire in a coal storage room was the probably cause for the explosion.

Know Your Place Shut Your Face!

A message from Homeland Security, Know Your Place Shut Your Face! Do not openly speak about the U.S military or else you will be punished. Citizens were publicly speaking out and giving away U.S military information which was giving other countries like Japan info on what the U.S was up to. Then people realized that this was going over the First Amendment which was freedom of speech. So this poster is showing that if your not in the government then you shouldn't be talking about them or the military.

1890s-1920s CLASSIFIEDS

The Espionage and Sedition Acts

Breaking news the Espionage Act and Sedition Act have been passed. The Espionage Act will be punishing people for aiding the enemy or refusing military duty. The Sedition Act made it illegal for Americans to utter, print, write, or publish any disloyal or abusive language criticizing the government, the flag, , or the military. One time free speech was not limited was the Spanish-American War. An example was the journals. The journal often favored Cuba and refused to use any Spanish sources. By doing this there stories were often bias.

The Car....With a Radio?

For citizens of America cars were a place of freedom and radios were there to have a good time and listen to good music. The radio was also for sports and news. But would anyone realize that it might be a good idea to put the two of them together? Probably not until William Lear and Elmer Wavering did. Many problems occurred like having the radio being able to be heard over the cars engine and not interfering with the cars electrical system or anything with the car. Within a few years the car radio would become the normal in everyday cars. The world of American teenagers would never be the same. This was because they would play loud music and annoy a lot of people.
