About This Event
Presenter: Dr. Ted Childress
Every war results in a decline in morality during and after the war; that was certainly the case in "The Roaring Twenties.” Rejection of the old morals led to selective obedience of laws, the rise of organized crime, a philosophy of "Anything Goes" and almost daily exposure of personal and political scandals. Racial unrest and fears of mass immigration rekindled nativism while agriculture sank into recession presaging the Great Depression.
