This powerpoint is a brief (38 slide) introduction to the 1920s. Topics covered include but are not limited to: the Red Scare, isolationism, Palmer Raids, Soviet Ark, Sacco and Vanzetti, KKK, Al Capone, Prohibition, gangs, Scopes Monkey Trial, Babe Ruth, Airplanes, Cars, Flappers, and Skyscrapers. I typically take 2 days to cover all the topics in this slide (for many of the slides the pictures serve the purpose of reminding me what to talk about so it's light on words, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want more background information for this item).
