The Great Depression in the US in the 1930's caused high unemployment,food shortages, poor medical care and soup kitchens in various cities. Some men sought service in the US army to keep themselves fed, and many men joined the CC camps that were designed to give men government jobs working on the nation's infrastructure. Despite the bad economics, Americans found relief by going to the movies or watching baseball games.
