Drought years became more and more common where crops withered in the fields and cattle died of thirst. The furious winters of 1886 and 1887 killed the ranchers’ cattle by literally freezing them to death. Many farmers loaded up their household goods and gave up, but others stayed behind to continue farming. Between the bank’s loans, the government’s tight money policies, and the high rate that the railroad charged to carry the farmer’s crops to the market, the farmers were cash-poor. In 1880s, the farmers organized an alliance in which they demanded state ownership of the railroads.
Importing and exporting goods and supplies was banned quickly once people realized the pestilence was spread by these trade men. Since there was nowhere to get supplies from, cities had to provide for themselves. With the scarce amount of goods on hand, and the high demand for them, prices skyrocketed. Most of the workers were dead; those who weren’t, charged up to five times what they had before the plague. As the workers’ wages outpaced the prices of goods, the workers began to become rich and skilled in what they did.
The civil rights movement had little impact with few significant improvements towards the overall goal of equality. Despite the 15th Amendment introduced in 1870, black people were still suppressed through de jure segregation. The Plessy vs. Ferguson (1896) ‘equal but separate’ decision confirmed blacks to be seen as second-class citizens. With Supreme Court backing, the case showed that there was still endemic racism in the country and institutional corruption in the southern states; two factors which would prove to hinder the movement. The Jim Crow Laws plus direct physical intimidation such as lynching enabled white people to maintain their supremacy through better access to education, higher-paid jobs and good housing, showing the massive social and economic division between black and white people at the time.
These illnesses are all occurring in U.S. veterans. Large head syndrome, retardation, sever bone malformation, uncontrolled muscle spasms, and hyper activity are occurring in the offspring of people who handled or came in contact with the defoliant. Not only did Agent Orange destroy lives, it destroyed crops, fields, and homes. Billions of dollars worth of damage occurred from the use of Agent Orange. About 42 percent of the amount of Agent Orange that we used was devoted to crop destruction; the products of hours of hard work were demolished within seconds.
From unemployment and homelessness to the horror of living life just to attempt to meet basic survival needs, the Depression marks the worst economic times in the history of the United States. The farming culture of America was decimated, but out of these hardships emerged some positive effects. The government helped create a welfare state that took an intense interest in the well-beings of its citizens and passed the Social Security Act. Another positive effect surfacing from the Great Depression was the more equal spreading of economic wealth.. There was also a smaller gap between the wealth of all social classes.
None of these methods are new. This has been happening for more than a million years but at a very slow rate. Neighbors that grow any kind of citrus tree pass it on from tree to tree just like it would be in the vineyards. Having to deal with this problem of these invasive species it is costing the state of California at least $3 billion dollars a year. According to California Invasive Plant Council for Spring 2009 says that weeds alone cost California $82 million a year and that also suggest that invasive species has cost the United States $138 billion.
The famine had a disastrous effect all over Ireland and with the failure of the then British rulers to help with the food shortage and the exporting of grain to pay landlords their rent Ireland became practically unlivable which was the main reason for Irish immigration in the 1800’s. The famine left over a million people dead of starvation and others who survived with diseases such as cholera and typhus. Making them flee to the United States and Canada as well, as the living conditions were harsh in Ireland, the ship they traveled in to America was poorly as well, it was know as the “Coffin Ship”. The conditions were so poorly that many Irish died during the trip to the United States and Canada, never having the chance to live the better
*The decade after World War I was a period of great prosperity for most of America (although for farmers it was a period of bad fortune, as food prices fell shortly after World War I ended), and Americans were able to enjoy that prosperity with more free time than ever before. *Rising wages, shorter working hours and a shorter work week (the average work week fell from 70 hours in 1850 to 55 hours in 1910 to 45 in 1930), gave people the time and money to enjoy themselves. Furthermore, after the destruction of the Great War and the Spanish Flu, Americans wanted to cut loose, and the 1920s were known as the Roaring Twenties. *Americans had new ways to enjoy themselves. Movies were new, and much cheaper (only a few cents) than going to a play or concert.
Furthermore in the Southern states of USA the abolition movement was resented. Plantation owners were unwilling to end slavery because it provided them with a free labour force. Many white Americans had justified slavery by thinking of slaves as racially inferior, as people without human needs, rights or dignity. The legal system had supported these racist views, and the rights of the plantation owners for many years. After 1890 many Southern governments passed a series of laws that set up a system of segregation that would last until the mid-twentieth century.
