First reply,


In the 1920s, America went through a period known as the Red Scare. This began because of the protests in reply to low wages. Many workers went on strike and refused to work because they felt that they deserved more pay. In this period of time the demand of services sky-rocketed, but wages stayed the same because of bans on raising wages. Many Americans feared that this was happening because of the support from the communist. This is what triggered the fear of immigrants who were so called communists. After having this scare, America contemplated the idea of closing their borders in order to protect themselves against the then viewed scary russians. When this happened, there was more than 5,000 immigrants taken into custody with the idea that they were guilty. Many immigrants were also deported from America, and many american citizens were accused of holding radical political ideas, and housing immigrants in the hope that they would not be deported if they were not found. This period of time led to much criticism from the congress and press. After receiving hate, Palmer decided to release immigrants that had been detained.The period of 1919 and 1920 created a devastating setback for radical and labor organizations.(Foner 2017). Also at this time, Warren G.Harding was running for office. As a lure for many Americans he decided to make his campaign slogan “return to normalcy”, which of course caused many people to vote for him with the idea that all would be better again; he then continued to receive 60 percent of the popular vote and inspired many americans to persevere and carry out their goals, just as he was doing(Foner 2017). These reading’s display the growing apart of america due to a variety of reasons. America at this time was not a unified country as it had been previously. These texts show the chain of events that led to the cold war, or before that, the red scare. Many Americans were tore apart due to the disliking of russians because they were believed to be communist. After analyzing the texts that explained the red scare, it conveys that although we may be unified in the previous years, during this time of catastrophe, America was in need of rebuilding and bringing together its clashing citizens.

Second reply


The Red Scare was a movement that emerged in the United States after the Russian revolution, when communist defeated the government therefore becoming a communist nation. The Red Scare created fear among immigrants due to the fact that Americans believe that they were not able to adapt to the American culture and customs. They Implemented laws staying that no one should teach a child in a foreign language. “Robert Meyer, a parochial school teacher in Nebraska, was found guilty of violating a 1919 law that mandate that all instruction be in English” (Foner, 2017b, p. 151). Afterward, the Supreme court removed his sentence due to it was violating the 14 amendment. During these Red Scare period there more violations of liberty like the execution of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, two Italians accused of robbery and sentenced to death even though it wasn’t proved. “Their trial took place in an atmosphere of anti-immigrant and anti-radical hysteria” ((Foner, 2017b, p. 145). This increased the fear among Immigrants, since these two men were assassinated just because they were immigrants and think differently.

Original prompt 


After decades of largely unfettered immigration, America began to close her doors and discuss limiting the number of new immigrants to the country. This was driven in part by the Red Scare and the fear of radicalism, but also the perception that many immigrants were failing to integrate into American society. Using the readings on pp. 792–793 of the textbook and Vanzetti’s last statement (Reading 134), as well as the longer readings on Congressional immigration (Reading 135) and the Meyer v. Nebraska case (Reading 136), how do these readings reflect the growing divisions over the nature of American society in the 1920s?
