The Stock Market Crash of 1929: The End of Prosperity
From Series: Milestones in American History

On October 29, 1929, more than 16 million stock shares were sold at the New York Stock Exchange, and by the end of November, investors had lost more than $100 billion in assets. With the crash, the prosperity of the Roaring Twenties came to a close and a dark era of financial despair dawned in the United States. The Stock Market Crash of 1929 is a revealing look at the events that helped usher one of the grimmest periods in American history.

About the Series: The new Milestones in American History series introduces students to seminal events in American history that helped shape the nation. From the illuminating discoveries of Thomas Edison to the landmark dissolution of racial segregation, each book presents a three-dimensional look at a particular event and those people who not only played an integral part in making it significant, but were also ultimately affected by its consequences. Bolstered by biographical sketches, extensive photographs, excerpts from primary source documents, and first-person narratives, this curriculum-based series is ideal for students writing reports.
