A Republican Decade
1920 Presidential Election Warren G. Harding promises Americans “A return to normalcy” and economic growth.
The Bolshevik Revolution –Czar Nicholas II is forced to abdicate because of WWI. –Alexander Kerensky leads the new government, and supports WWI and is very unpopular
–Vladimir I. Lenin promises “peace, land and bread” –His movement becomes very strong, and overthrows the government, seizes all property (some belonging to Americans)
–Civil war breaks out between the Bolsheviks (Reds) and the Republicans (Whites). The U.S. supports the Whites. –Reds win, withdraw from WWI.
o Lenin Advocates the worldwide spread of Communism.
The Red Scare –Americans were nervous about the Commies –Led to a sudden, intense fear of Communism, Radical Ideas, and Foreigners. This fear was collectively known as “The Red Scare”…
–Schneck vs. U.S.- “Clear and Present Danger” –Gitlow vs. New York – Upheld the convictions of anarchists –Palmer Raids – Govt. actively pursued perceived anarchists
–Sacco and Vanzetti – Two Italian anarchists were charged, convicted, and executed for a crime they didn’t commit because they were radical foreigners. Most Americans felt they were framed.
Strikes and the Red Scare 1920 – 350 strikes a month all over the U.S., and people blamed immigrants, communists, and radicals.
Boston Police Strike – goes on strike for higher wages. Future President Calvin Coolidge calls in the state police to break the strike.
