Event Description

As the Great War ended in Europe, another sort of war erupted at home. Public battles over prohibition and women’s liberation, rising crime rates, race riots and a surge of nativism in the form of the Ku Klux Klan shattered Americans’ sense of peace. This session will examine the fraught aftermath of WWI, a time that gives new meaning to the idea of “the roaring twenties.”

Presented by Amy Louise Wood, Professor and Graduate Coordinator, Department of History, ISU
