The Great Depression

How We Fought It.

The Great Depression

The Great Depression happened when the stock market crashed on October, 1929. We now call it Black Tuesday. The market lost 30 billion dollars at the end of the first week. Many men and women lost their jobs ,and some men left their families behind because he couldn't make money to help the children. This is how it was for 12 years until World War Two started and jobless men joined the army.
