Lots of new things were manufactured because there were people to fill the job vacancies. Immigrants believed America was a 'land of opportunity' they could arrive there with nothing and through hard work they could become rich. During the First World War, America sold weapons, food and supplies to the European soldiers. The USA had no competition from any other countries, and so made a lot of money during the war, thus boosting their economy. This also strengthened their friendship with oreos Britain because they were seen to be helping them in their hour of need - the war.
The colonies however, felt that they fought the war side by side with the British, causing the two groups to have different political ideas. British politics felt that it would be just to impose taxes on the Americans in order to pay off their war debt that had accumulated. Taxes were imposed on nearly everything in the colonies in order for Britain to payoff debt; these taxes simply outraged the colonists which is the start of the conflict between America and Britain. Taxes such as the Stamp Act, which placed a tax on any printed document that was purchased, and the Tea Act, which placed an insane tax on tea in the colonies, and basically cutoff colonists from finding a cheaper price for tea, pushed the colonists overboard, leading them to rebellions. One of these rebellions was the Boston Tea Party, where colonists dressed up as Indians and threw the entire stock of British tea into the Boston Harbor, which was one of America’s first major acts of independence towards Britain.
The French and Indian War made the British council establish new laws. They passed laws like the proclamation of 1763 where the British closed off the frontier to the colonist (Doc A). This included the Ohio Valley. This angered the colonist, brought tension, and broke their bond. After the Proclamation they also had tension due to the fact that the British passed acts to pay for the money they lost to pay for the war.
As a result of ongoing military blunders, Tsar Nicholas II decided to take charge of the army himself. The political consequences of Nicholas' decision to lead the army were huge. However, war affected Russia in other ways, which also had a damaging impact on the Tsar. As more and more men went to war, the work of factories and farms became a matter of some concern. Russian industry and agriculture struggled to cope with the war economy; food shortages in the cities were heightened by the war and the limited railway system was focused on transportation of men and arms to the front, rather than food to the cities.
To what extent did The Ku Klux Klan prevented African Americans from gaining Civil Rights in the years 1960-64? Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, the Ku Klux Klan re-emerged, feeling that their goal of white supremacy was being challenged by the Civil Rights Campaign. Between these years they created many problems for the campaign, and could even be blamed for the lack of Civil Rights legislation in this period. One of the key ways in which the Klan blocked any progress was through intimidation and fear. In many Southern States the force and presence of the Klan was enough to dissuade African Americans from joining the campaign - Mississippi, as state with the highest amount of Klan activity also had the lowest amount of registered African American voters, and the lowest amount of NAACP activists.
Racism in the 1960s was a huge decade and a battle between white and colored people. Propaganda played a big part in changing people’s minds. There is a whole range of media used to spread this propaganda, from prejudice commercials to inspiring speeches, for example ’I have a Dream from Birmingham Jail. People such as Martin Luther King Jr. tried to draw people to him by giving arrange speeches to the American public into changing people’s mind on segregation and to put an end to racism. Groups such as the KKK didn’t like to scare blacks into trying to leave town by putting up signs, burning homes down and killing people throughout the entire country, to show people the stand for what they believe in.
In fact the groups within the right such as the Freikorps and consul organisation showed an increasing amount of violence because of their lack of support on democracy, which of course created a tremendous threat to the Weimar Republic. To an extent one could argue that the economy was a major threat to the stability of the Weimar Republic in the period 1919-1923 due to the severe reparation payments. The Treaty of Versailles stipulated that Germany had to pay reparations for the damage which was caused in WW1. The poor leadership and economic problems consequently led to a German defeat. In 1921, the total amount of reparations was set at 269 billion gold marks.
