1920
The 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is adopted.
The 19th Amendment gave women the right to vote.


Prohibition begins.
Alcohol sales and consumption were strictly regulated. People found in violation of these
regulations were fined and/or jailed. Prohibition contributed to a rise in organized crime
activities centered on illegal trafficking in alcoholic beverages.


1921
Congress enacts Emergency Quota Act.
In response to immigrants leaving Europe at the end of World War I, Congress passed this
act and limited the total number of immigrants to approximately 350,000. Passage of this law
was an early indication of the intolerance which characterized this decade.


1922
The boll weevil ruins more than 85 percent of the South’s cotton crop.
Most American farmers were in deep debt within a few years of the end of World War I. The
devastation of the cotton crop drove thousands of southern farmers into bankruptcy. This
disaster contributed to a continued pattern of migration north by African Americans.


1924
The stock market begins its spectacular rise.
Investors began purchasing stocks on margin, a risky technique involving the purchase of
stocks with borrowed money and using the purchased stock shares themselves as collateral.
Many initially became wealthy, but were unable to pay debts when the stock prices fell in
1929.



                                                                                             6

                        Time Line of the 1920s Answers (continued)

National Origins Act replaces Emergency Quota Act.
Congress restricted immigration by establishing national quotas. Asians and people from
southern and eastern Europe were subject to discrimination.


1925
Ku Klux Klan members stage a major march through Washington, D.C.
Interest in the Ku Klux Klan increased as immigrants continued to enter the United States.
With more than five million members, the Klan marched to show its strength and political
clout.
Scopes trial takes place in Dayton, Tennessee.
Biology teacher, John Scopes was taken to court and eventually fined for teaching Darwin’s
theory of evolution. This case reflected one instance of a clash between modern and
traditional values in the 1920s.

1926
Langston Hughes publishes “The Weary Blues.”
“The Weary Blues,” Langston Hughes’ first published book, showed an African-American
perspective through poetry. It became a major example of the creativity associated with the
Harlem Renaissance.

1927
Sacco and Vanzetti are executed.
Sacco and Vanzetti were Italian immigrants and anarchists accused of robbery and murder
during a period called the Red Scare. Their trial and execution reflected the decade’s fears
about threats to the government and prejudices about foreigners.

Charles Lindbergh flies across the Atlantic.
Charles Lindbergh completed the first solo transatlantic flight in 33 and one half hours.


                                                                                               7

1928
Herbert Hoover is elected U.S. president.
Hoover’s reluctance to employ government resources to address economic problems helped
worsen the effects of the Depression.


1929
The U.S. stock market crashes on "Black Tuesday.”
People who bought stock on margin lost millions of dollars. Crash was a key indicator that
the economy was in a depression.




                                                                                             8
