Answer The First World War, known as the Great War and as World War One (abbreviated WWI) after 1939, was a world conflict lasting from August 1914 to the final Armist…ice on November 11, 1918. The Allied Powers (led by Britain, France, Russia until 1917, and the United States after 1917), defeated the Central Powers (led by the German Empire, Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Ottoman Empire). The war caused the disintegration of four empires (Austro-Hungarian, German, Ottoman, and Russian) as well as radical change in the European and Middle Eastern maps. The Allied powers before 1917 are sometimes referred to as the Triple Entente, and the Central Powers are sometimes referred to as the Triple Alliance. Allies: Military dead: 5 million Civilian deaths: 3 million Total of dead: 8 million Central Powers: Military dead: 4 million Civilian deaths: 3 million Total dead: 7 million

The Great Depression- The Great Depression did not affect everyone the same way. Many rich people felt no impact at all, and were oblivious to the suffering of others. Up t…o 40% of the country never faced real hardship during those years. But most were touched by it in some way. The Depression changed the family in dramatic ways. Many couples delayed marriage - the divorce rate dropped sharply (it was too expensive to pay the legal fees and support two households); and birth rates dropped below the replacement level for the first time in American history. Families suffered a dramatic loss of income during Herbert Hoover's term in office, dropping 35% in those four years to $15M. This put a great deal of stress on families. Some reacted by pulling together, making due with what they had, and turning to family and friends for help. Only after exhausting all alternatives would they reluctantly look to the government for help. Other families did not fare as well, and ended up failing apart. How did people survive?Minimize expenses. If you have extra money, use it to put your family in the best position possible to survive a potential depression. Purchase tools, necessary kitchen equipment, garden necessities, fishing gear, and other items to help improve your measure of self-sufficiency.Buy American. As much as possible, avoid purchasing imported goods and look for American-made products to help our country pull itself out of the recession. You may have to track down companies online and ask local shops to carry American-made goods. The extra dollars spent are well worth it. If we all followed this practice, imagine the outcome. Keep your money here; don't send it overseas.Seek multiple income opportunities, rather than relying on one sector or one company for the family's support. If your job is highly secure, you're in a better position, but still look for side income opportunities. If your job is threatened or unstable, build up additional income sources right away.Produce and preserve food. We plan to have a large family garden and our own laying hens in the backyard. As local fruits and vegetables come into season, I will pick and preserve my own - strawberry preserves, frozen peaches and jarred apple sauce are all simple to put up from local, inexpensive bounty.Stay hopeful, pray for guidance and do not lose the joy of life. There were a few lucky people who retained their jobs during the Great Depression. Some were able to obtain part-time work and lived on less income and perhaps what little savings they had. Some sold or lost their homes and moved in with relatives. The symbol of the Depression, the man on the street selling apples, was an attempt to create work and also sell an agricultural product. It was not very successful. Many men left home so they would not be a burden to their family. These became the "hoboes" who would often "ride the rails" searching for jobs in other parts of the country. If they found work, they would send some money home. Others pretended to go to work. They would leave home in the morning and wander the parks or streets looking for work, and then return home for the evening. Many took to begging. In small, rural areas, men would often approach a farm house and ask if there were any jobs to be done in return for some food or a place to sleep. Some turned to crime but since most people were not well off, criminals often were not too successful. Many took advantage of the New Deal programs and went to work for the federal government. Others survived on the meals provided by charity groups. Restrict spending to the minimum. Buy only from friends in local businesses who in turn would buy your wares. Save as much as possible but not in banks. Keep a low profile --- collect scraps and reuse them. Keep the family strong. Buy land for cash when possible.
The banks shut down and they ran out of work which led to them not having money to put in savings.They also were using in stock markets and the stock market crashed.They were …trying to save their belongings.

The major effect of the Great Depression on America was expanded government intervention into new areas of social and economic affairs and the creation of more social as…sistance agencies at the national level. The relationship between the national government and the people changed drastically. The government took on a greater role in the everyday social and economic lives of the people. The New Deal programs of FDR also created a liberal political alliance made up of labor unions, blacks and other ethnic and religious minorities, intellectuals, the poor, and some farmers. These groups became the backbone of the Democratic Party for decades following the Depression. The Great Depression and the New Deal measure led to the domestic programs of JFK’s New Frontier, and LBJ’s Great Society and War on Poverty. The New Deal measures have also an influence on the current Obama administration, in its attempts to stimulate the economy.
