Coolidge and the roaring 20’s

Calvin Coolidge was born on July 4th, 1872, the only president to be born on independence day.  Calvin Coolidge was born into a wealthy family, and at the age of 12, his mother died.  Nobody knows what she died from.  Just 6 years later, another tragedy happened, Calvin Coolidge younger sister died, and again from an unknown thing.  Calvin Coolidge’s father remarried.  Calvin Coolidge wanted to learn law, and instead of going to school to learn law, he went to an already established law firm and learnt law on the go.

In the year of 1905, Calvin Coolidge got married to Grace Anna Goodhue in October 1905.

Calvin Coolidge was vice president of the USA, from March 4, 1921 – August 2, 1923.  He than was president from August 2, 1923 – March 4, 1929.  The 29th president of the US died of a heart attack.

Calvin Coolidge was one of the best presidents of the USofA.  He died on January 5, 1933 at the age of 60.

The roaring 20’s was a time where everyone had more money and they changed the way they dressed and woman were allowed to drink alcohol, and smoked.

Animation was made.

75% of all americans in the 1920’s went to the movie theater once a week.

Cars were everywhere, the model T was the most popular car.  The price dropped down to $260 per car.

Another thing was that people wanted to drink alcohol, but the US didn’t sell it.  So that is what lead to the underground tavers to make the nasty stuff.

After the roaring 20’s, the great depression came.
