If asked to name one of the most troubling years in American history few would select 1919. Many think that after World War I, the “war to end all wars,” the United States was a peaceful and prosperous place because the hostilities ended. This was far from the truth. Identify one reason that 1919 was a year of a “savage peace,” and provide a supporting explanation. Describe the short and long term impacts this reason had on the nation. Then analyze your selection for its historical significance.
