Mass Production was and still is very important to economies and really helped out America during this time.
Due to Henry Ford's invention of the assembly line in the 20's mass production at lower prices is still possible today for a lot of items such as cars.
Good comment! The assembly line helped shape new technology. Cars were easier to build and the company benefited from the advancement in production and economy.
This is very true!
Model T cars were able to be produced at 1/10 the time of other cars at the time due to the assembly line.
Mass Production and the assembly line allowed faster production of the line and ready for the market. Many people were able to buy the expensive goods (cars) at the same time if they wanted.
This is very true. It helped the production
ah the assembly line what a beautiful invention that changed the course of history.
Yeah mass production helped better business which helped stimulate the economy :)
Henry Ford revolutionized the way companies mass produce today by mastering the manufacturing line.
Henry Ford really increased productions and was innovative by doing so when he decreased hours and increased pay.
Fun fact about Henry Ford (since we just studying WWI), Henry Ford tried to build airplanes to sell to the US Military and is recognized as a pioneer of aviation!
Al copone had many connections with many people including cops to keep him out of jail
Al Capone was not all a bad guy, he actually donated money (which he obtained through illegal activities) to charities, and was known as a "Modern Day Robin Hood."
Al Capone even the was an O.G he helped the community more than he hurt it
I agree. I think he was a good guy but he got caught up in the wrong people.
I learned that during this period American culture and economy boomed. The economy boomed with the new Model T. Ford and people flocking to cities. Modern art was trending which was about the mood artist felt about the world after World War I. One of the biggest movements was the Harlem Renaissance where musical and dancing arts grew into a new popular trend.

Cool Tian :)
I thought it was cool how the Stein family were the first to collect modern art! The Steins started collecting works that would start the pace for modern art.
I thought that was interesting as well.
Yeah, that was interesting and new to me. I wouldn't have known this if it weren't for this assignment :)
It was cool how they helped out Picasso by buying his paintings.
DD your right man
The Model T Ford introduced mass production in the time period of the horse and buggy
This is a good post
this is a good comment on a post
Due to the Flapper Movement, women became more independent and paved the way for women getting more rights.
Good point :) This was a time period where many women pioneered the way
This is a very good comment. Women were finally becoming independent. Flappers changed the way people viewed women in general.
The Flapper livened dance and brought happiness to people by just basically flapping around! (Ask Mr. Hollenbeck for an example of the Flapper.)
The flapper also gave a new image to women, from conserved and strict, to free and loose.
Al Capone was smart but was involved with gangs since he was young, he was also a gangster.
This is a very true fact. Al Capone was indeed a gangster.
I concur with your comment on a very fine post
Al Capone, although he was a gang member, he did donate large amounts of his money to charities. Although it was stolen, he could still, in a sense be considered a good man but with bad actions.
Al Capone was a American gangster who had gained social and political control in society. Taught by Yale and known as Scarface, he became a underground king that was multidimensional.
Organized crime grew due to the fact that it was the only way to obtain alcohol, and it made big money, fast.
Al Capone was such a huge american icon in the 20's. I did not know that Scarface had his own movie, I mean, the guy was a gangster who did so many bad things! lol
Yeah, Prohibition was the reason for organized crime because it cause all alcohol to be illegal.
"The Great Gatsby" was not very popular during the 1920's, however now it is considered an important piece of literature and Scott Fitzgerald is also considered one of the greatest 20th century writers today.
The writers showed how intellectual people could be and is used as a very important part of education today.
In the movie you can see the difference in class with the way Gatsby lives and the way the woman that Tom was cheating with lives. With the economy being hit with the Depression the gap between classes would expand.
I learned about how Babe Ruth gave the people not only entertainment, but hope and happiness whenever he hit "The Home Run Shot". The crowds in the stands were so wild compared to now a days if you go to any other baseball game! America seemed to be in a decade of good change and prosperity in the Roaring 20's.
babe ruth the home run hero. some say he was they greatest baseball player who ever lived likewise , i really enjoy your great comment.
Babe Ruth was basically living the American Dream. He gave hope and inspiration to people who watched him play his baseball games.
During the 1920s modernism (a turn toward scientific reasoning rather than religion) clashed with the tradition if religion. Today we still see this large difference between people especially with the proposal with gay rights.
In "Midnight in Paris," I learned that our generation of writers look back to the famous works of the authors from the 20's because they wrote honest novels. The novels were about war, depression, etc.
the novels on the depression are quiet extraordinary, I agree with your good taste for books.
I noticed that too. It made me reflect on historical fiction novels and how "true" or "accurate" they may be. Most of them, at least ones that a few friends and I have read, seem to be strictly "based" off of historical time periods and events but don't really tell the story the way it happened.
what learned about the roaring twenties was that the U.S.A had a cultural boom industrial boom and financial boom until in the 1930 the U.S stock market crashed and the u.s.a enter a great depression alimentally of war one. war two later in the 1940 U.S.A had then yet entered another war.
The stock market crashed due to over inflation. Over inflation is the over production of goods that no one buys due to the fact that they don't need it.
Very true. good post Seth!
In the late 1920s, Charles Lindbergh became the first man to fly non-stop over the Atlantic Ocean. For doing this, he received a $25,000 reward, the Ortiz Prize, the Medal of Honor, and the Congressional Gold Medal.
yes, he was labeled as the first man to cross the ocean, however as many tried to accomplish this mission, many lost their lives in the process.
This is pretty cool! The aircraft itself was made my the creators of Ryan Air and was named the Spirit of Saint Louis.
Henry ford created the first mass production of vehicles by using the assembly line
Henry Ford also said that you could have any color car you want al long as it's black.
The flapper movement changed the women from their former ways of long dresses and always proper attitudes to the short fringe dresses with a spunky attitude.
Flappers were women who broke through several gender barriers.
It allowed freer movement and independent women!!
Thankyouuuu Independent women!!!!!
Henry Ford started a great line of vehicles. He made the production line faster by giving everyone a specific part and made it cheaper by be-using parts.
Charles Linbergh was the first to successfully fly across the Atlantic Ocean. His rewards were the Medal of Honor, the Congressional Gold Medal, the Ortiz Prize and $25,000
World war 1 just ended and people are making money. Men are back at work.
The 1920s was the first time that Americans began to focus on science more than religion, which is still true today.
i learned that mass production was created by Henry Ford who also created the model t which was the car that could go everywhere
Very true.... His cars were designed to go through thick and thin, and were not too expensive to buy. With his Assembly line, his production was growning quite rapidly as was the peoples desire for the car.
Prohibition was the banning of manufacturing/sale of alcohol in the us. this led to a growth of organized crime
Yes, it was soon a cause for many crimes due to the cause of being illegal to the public.
Take away the alcohol, crime rate goes up. good post!
Gertrude Stein's obsession with collecting Picasso's paintings has saved many them and preserved them for future for new generations to enjoy.
yes! she has saved many of them, i don't think Picasso would be as famous if it wasn't for her!
Charles Lindbergh was the first man to successfully fly across the Atlantic Ocean. His flight made Missouri a leader in the developing world of aviation . Lindbergh landed in Paris on May 21, 1927 and received the Ortiz Prize, Medal of Honor, and Congressional Gold Medal. Charles Lindbergh has helped shape the world of aviation, leading to technological advances in air flight and in airports.
That's cool that he was the first, and he got a huge reward too!!
He earned 25,000 dollars which was the prize at the time.
He earned 25,000 dollars which was the reward at the time. :)
The Model T Ford was one of the first cars to be assembled on an assembly line efficiently.
As long as the buyer wanted a black car they were happy
The Model-T had a 20-horsepowerand reached about 45 miles per hour
Flappers helped young girls express their emotions and feelings through the way they dressed and looked. That was the new generation which still plays a huge role with the way us girls dress and look through new styles everyday.
Flappers started life as normal everyday girls who just wore what was traditional for them. As they grew older, they began to fight for their own right of dress. Dressing in dresses that went to their knees, they began their spunky era. However the flappers didn't die than, they still live on now. Everyday girls and guys come out with new dress styles and unique outfits showing you their adventurous, spunky, and unique sides.
Charles Lindbergh was the first man to successfully fly across the Atlantic. His success reflected greatly on America and was a starting point for a new way of transportation.
The number of people employed in 1929 began to drop rapidly over the next two years and slowly began to rise but never reached the number of people in 1929. This is a trend that has repeated over the last century but not as drastically.
James Weldon Johnson was an early leader in the NAACP and a civil rights activist
what i learn was that jazz change the way of music. From what i seen and heard the music took away stress cause the would dance to also have there own style.
Jazz was also known as the "Lost Generation". It was a time for young kids to rebel through music and dancing. Jazz music had a huge influence on pop culture throughout the years.
This is very true..Jazz has impacted music greatly, like the artist Louis Armstrong
