Transcript of The Great Depression and The American Dream

Like today, people in
the 1930 disliked big
businesses People during the Great
Depression had little faith
in the government to set
things right. With the Great Depression
around, the American
Dream seemed lost to the
public. Christmas Dinner In Iowa During the Great Depression The Great Depression "Do you hear them cry?
Despair and shame, that final sense
Of doom descending upon innocence,
Outcasts from pity's gentle eye?" Families could not afford a big dinner and settled for a simple meal -The music they had played during the Great Depression was mostly folk music.
-These type of songs helped people to be more happy and hopeful during these times.
-Mostly played in the West -Marya Zaturenska "The Virgin, the Doe, and the Leper" They took away all the
money that was given
for recovery from crisis. With everyone out of a job,
the American Dream seemed
farther away then ever.

reason for calling it the Great
Depression.
