Important Inventions Thompson Submachine Gun (Tommy Gun) was designed in the 1920's by General General John T. Thompson F. Scott Fitzgerald He lived from 1896 to 1940. He was the leading writer of America's Jazz Age and the Roaring 20's. Some of his work include "The Great Gaspy", "This Side of Paradise", "The Beautiful and Damned", "Flappers and Philosophers", "Tales of the Jazz Age", and many more. He was born in St. Paul, Minnesota He attended Princeton University, where he wrote amateur musical comedies. He left in 1917, without a degree. After Princeton he joined the Armyand was later commisioned as Second Lieutenant in the Infantry. Mr. Fitzgerald married Ms. Zelda Fayre on April 3, 1920. They had their daughter (and only child), Frances (or also known as Scottie) in the year 1920. Zelda was a typical "flapper" girl. The Fitzgeralds moved to France. Here their marriage became damaged. Zelda became involved with a French naval aviator. Because of this, Fitzgerald turned to alcohol, becoming an alcoholic. During their stay in France (and even in the US), Zelda was in and out of the mental hospital. While they were back in the states, and Zelda was in the hospital again, Fitzgerald started becoming involved with Sheilah Graham. At the age of 44, he died of a heart attack in Ms. Graham's apartment. The Automobile The first automobile was
built in 1896. Henry Ford was the man who
introduced the assembly line and
the Model T. Ford. The "Big Three" manufactures
included Ford, General Motors [GM],
and Chrysler. The assembly line was created so that
the automobiles would be created quicker
and more efficiently. The first assembly line included the Ford
Model T, which was later discontinued in 1927.
Over 15 million were sold. In the year 1929, over 4.5 million cars were sold. Did they ROAR... or was it a YAWN.. Fashion & Trends MASS CULTURE home appliances like electric refrigerators
Radios! The first commercial radio station in the U.S., Pittsburgh’s KDKA, hit the airwaves in 1920; three years later there were more than 500 stations in the nation
By the end of the 1920s, there were radios in more than 12 million households
But the most important consumer product of the 1920s was the automobile Low prices (the Ford Model T cost just $260 in 1924) and generous credit made cars affordable luxuries at the beginning of the decade; by the end, they were practically necessities
an economy of automobiles was born. Businesses like service stations and motels sprang up to meet drivers’ needs.

by the 1920's Music was mostly all jazz that was popular The cotton club The Cotton Club was the most famous of the city's nightclubs in the 1920s and 1930s.

Its glittering revues provided a medium for performances by the most prominent jazz musicians of the day, and the club's activities were brought to large audience through frequent radio broadcasting.

When the club first opened, Andy Preer's Cotton Club Syncopators were the house band.

After Peer's death in 1927, Duke Ellington and his orchestra took their place and were the most celebrated band in the clubs history until 1931.

The from 1931-1934 Cab Calloway and his Missourians took over.

Most of the principal jazz musicians, singers, and dancers of the period appeared at the Cotton Club at some stage, including Louis Armstrong, Ethel Waters, Bill Robinson, and the Nicholas Brothers.

Women's Suffage Finally, in 1919, Congress passed the 19th Amendment, sending it to the states. On August 26, 1920, after Tennessee ratified the Amendment by one vote, the 19th Amendment was adopted. Inventions The Charleston Dance Charleston Dance Becomes Popular (1923): The Charleston dance became popular after appearing along with the song, "The Charleston," by James P. Johnson in the Broadway musical Runnin' Wild in 1923. Annette Hanshaw

Most important famale jazz artist because she was very confident when interpreting of her songs. Father was a hotel owner and when she turned eighteen he hired her too sing at ingagements and parties. Her father bought her a music shop at the age of eighteen.

Annette's career didn't last very long because of the hectic touring,
to much publicity, and inability to lead a normal life. She wasn't prepared
for all the fame and retired at age 28. But if it wasn't for Annette the early history of Jazz singers would
almost be entirely made up of men.

After! After the vote was finally won in 1920, the organized Women's Rights Movement continued on in several directions. While the majority of women who had marched, petitioned and lobbied for woman suffrage looked no further, a minority - like Alice Paul ;understood that the quest for women's rights would be an ongoing struggle that was only advanced, not satisfied, by the vote.
