The treaty of Versailles ending world war I created an uneasy peace. amid post war stability, great Britain and France avoided conflict, and the U.S saw to isolate itself form Europe troubles. Meanwhile, however, Germany, Italy,and japan fell under the sway of leaders promising order and glory by the end of 1930's their aggression would plunge the world into the second world war.

The novel details the selfish, reckless, and ultimately meaningless lives of the many rich- an image that becomes associated with the jazz age.
The best way to describe the 1920's is to say that it is a party era. Flappers were young women of the era who defied traditional ideas of proper dress and behavior. A new dance was invented where one would appear to dance out of control. The dancers would kick up their legs and move their arms in crazy movements. This dance is known as Swing and is still popular to this day

Roaming Character
Our last roaming character that pops up in this land is Langston Hughes. He is one of the most famous poets during the Harlem Renaissance. He began writing poetry as a teenager and as a traveler wrote what he saw. His profits of his first published book of poetry bought him his college education. Hughes settled in Harlem after college where he soaked up the rhythm of jazz music and incorporated them into his writing.
This attraction is a jumper-like ride where there is a dangling Styrofoam ball. The contestants will stand at each corner of the arena. Each corner will represent a different country of their choice. The objective of the game is to use the wrecking ball and knock down the other opponents in order to conquer their land and win. This game gives you three rounds and those with the most rounds win. if their is a tie the opponents will have a face off.
Since this was a time of imperialists competition the opponents would try to conquer each other's land. For example how the united states annexed Hawaii. During this time European powers- Russia, France, Germany, and Great Britain- quickly carved out their own sphere's of influence in China. A sphere of influence is a geographic area where an outside nation exerts special economic or political control. The united states was too late to secure a sphere of influence in China therefore American leaders feared that the united states would be shut out of the valuable china trade.
