Well the Great Depression itself was mainly influenced by the Stock Market crash in October 29. 1929 also known as Black Tuesday. That coupled with drought(dust bowl in Kansas) and a spiraling economy. It wasn't until 1933 roughly that FDR's "New Deal" took place that the country was snapped out of it.
