Specht November 20th, The s was a great period of well-known events in history. One of the most important events of the decade was World War II, which basically ruled the s. It was the most costly and destructive war in history and its effects, for good and ill, were felt far beyond the battlefields.
After the war was over the United States entered a period of reat prosperity, an increase in the birthrate produced more consumers who fueled the economy and made the United States the most powerful nation Hills,p. It is safe to say that the s was one of the many decades that influenced and shaped the future of the American society, with the many challenges and hardship that the United States faced within this decade.
The events that took place in the s changed the American society forever. It was a time of hardship and every aspect of life were affected by World War II. The rights of different groups of people ere also an issue during the s, the inventions of different technology like computers, nuclear weapons, and rockets affected the whole world and television began to change American''s lives.
The s were defined by World War II. President Roosevelt came on the radio the next morning and announced that the United Sates was going to war. Roosevelt explained that the war was inevitable and that in order to win this war, the United States needed support from all Americans, and the next day Congress declared war on Japan Sullivan, The United States and the Allies were not successful in the beginning of the war, and President Roosevelt encouraged Americans on the home front, and General Eisenhower commanded troops in Europe.
After a disastrous beginning, the United States began to take the offensive and gradually began to turn the tide against Axis armies in Africa, Europe and on while Japan was not an easy defeat, and a secret atomic bomb had to be used against the Japanese mainland. The cost and sacrifices of the war were shocking.
This was a huge price to pay for victory, and could not have been done without the actions by the civilians on the home front during World War II. World War II was not only fought by the troops overseas, but also by our American women and children. When the war was declared, a lot of American men enlisted or were drafted into the armed forces, causing a labor shortage in factories and other blue collar Jobs.
Because of this the United States had to turn to its female population to replenish the labor supply. Women began to work in factories, making bullets and riveting planes, tanks, and other war supplies. Byhalf the workers on American assembly lines and factories were women. This was the first time in American history that women held Jobs that had been regarded as for men only.
Children were also able to participate in helping with the war, they collected scrap metal, old tires, and even toothpaste tubes that were recycled and used to make more war supplies. Children also grew victory gardens, which supplied one third of the fresh vegetables consumed in the United States Duden,p.
As a result of these social trends during World War II, women gained a new independence and were able to enter the workforce in much larger numbers and in a different capacity. Racial discrimination was still a norm in the United States during the start of the s.
By the end of the decade, those attitudes were beginning to change because of the events of the past 10 years. In the early s, African Americans began a great migration from the rural south to the northern cities.
This migration began during the WWII era because the war caused labor shortages, and African Americans ad a chance of getting Jobs in northern factories.
The migration benefited both the African American population and economy. African Americans and whites served together in the military and business world, but the United States was still a segregated society.
After World War II ended, African Americans were eager to be accepted, and one of the first breakthroughs came by way of America''s pastime, baseball. Only white players were allowed on the major league teams.
African Americans had to play in their own segregated league. A number of famous African American baseball stars were eager to make a break for the big eagues.
In the Brooklyn Dodgers drafted a young infielder named Jackie Robinson, the first Negro to achieve major-league baseball status in modern times Effrat, Although it was unknown to him at the time, but he would end up being a symbol of hope that a multi- racial society could exist.
Throughout the season Robinson received death threats and racial insults but racism could not stop him. Robinson stayed with the team and even went on to win the World Series and was even named rookie of the year. Technology started to rocket in the early s, but it was the early stages of films nd television.Rote learning is defined as the memorization of information based on repetition.
