Visit http://www.digitalhistory.uh.edu/timeline/timelineO.cfm and move the bottom scroll bar to show the time period from 1900-1950. Each icon on the US map represents an event or person related to American history during this time period.

Review the icons and choose two events/person/place thing that had a positive effect on US and world affairs. Limit your choice to events between 1900 and 1950. Describe why this effect was positive and how it affected international opinion of the United States.

Email your completed description to rod@rodmilstead.com. Type “20th Century America” in the subject line.  Be prepared to discuss one of your choices in class.
