The roaring twenties
After the horrors of World War I, Americans in the 1920's wanted to "forget your troubles, c'mon get happy". The decade saw changes in everything: how people spent money (charge it!), home appliances, transportation (cars for women!), clothing, hair, entertainment (Mickey Mouse), food (Reese's Cups) and even changing where the majority of Americans lived: African -Americans to the North, country folk to the city. The 1920's was a wild, fast ride and will end with a giant CRASH!
