From a cultural and historical perspective, the 1910s and 1920s were marked by a deep clash of cultures in the United States. This web site, hosted by the Department of History at Ohio State University, presents this highly complex subject by dividing it into four categories:
the Scopes Trial of 1925,
the New Woman, and
the Second Ku Klux Klan/Immigration Restriction.
The site invites students to read broad overviews that place the topics within their proper historical context and highlight their connections with each other. Rarely-seen photographs, political cartoons, and historical documents culled from period newspapers and magazines, as well as government archives, allow the student to read or view firsthand accounts of relevant subjects and invite the student to draw his/her own conclusions. Extra features, such as related links, indices for documents and images, and brief bibliographies, provide both the student and the instructor with tools to research the subject in greater depth.
