The 1st Red Square began when the Russians overthrew their czar

and set up a Communist government. People began to fear the labor

unions and anarchists in the US would become violent and disrupt

society. It ended in about 4 years.


The 2nd Red Scare was a period in which Americans feared that

Communists would try to achieve world domination. People were

afraid this would be done by infiltrating free governments and

gaining control of their countries. People were also afraid of

nuclear attack by Communist powers. The fear began soon after W W

II ended and the Russians made their intentions clear in Eastern

Europe. It grew during the Korean War and lasted until the USSR

split up and Germany was re-united.
