World War II’s Effect on
       America
With the war effort came sacrifices.
For millions of American families, the
war meant separation from loved
their ones serving overseas. Those at
home lived in fear of receiving a
telegram announcing that a family
member had been killed, wounded, or
captured.
With industries making war materials,
Americans faced shortages of many consumer
goods.

After 1942, for example, automakers stopped
making new cars and turned instead to making
tanks, planes, and trucks. Women could not
buy stockings. Silk imports from war-torn Asia
had halted, and nylon was needed to make
parachutes.
In addition many resources and goods needed for
the war effort were rationed, consumers could buy
only limited numbers of them. Americans used
government-issued books of ration coupons to
purchase certain items, such as shoes, gasoline,
tires, sugar, and meat. When people ran out of
coupons, they did without the rationed items. But
because Americans overwhelmingly supported the
war effort, they generally accepted inconveniences
and shortages with good spirits.
   Mardi Gras during
     World War II
                  1942
World War II, cancels most of Carnival.
No parades roll, but some celebrations
are held. This continues until 1945, the
end of the conflict.
