Freedom from Fear
“Fear” was on the minds of Americans from 1920 to 1945. Most notably President Roosevelt said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Select one significant experience from these years that caused Americans to be fearful, and analyze its historical significance. Briefly summarize the event and then describe the effects it had on the American people. Examine how this fear helped or hindered the American people. Examples could include a red scare, stock market crash, the Great Depression, and Hitler’s expansion throughout Europe. Also, incorporate and cite in APA format one of the primary sources in your response that you found in the textbook.
