You can learn about the Great Depression and The New Deal.
Hey! Do you remember the Great Depression. It seems like it happened a long time ago, but it really only just happened. Lets take a look back at what had happened.
I'm just a poor farmer. These past couple of years have been really tough. I have almost lost everything.
I grow a bunch of cotton and cotton only. The drought had hit me really hard some of my crops did not survive. I thought I would be alright until the Boll Weevil came. Those little critters took all my crops, their was nothing left foe me there. I was in so much debt I had to sell my farm.
I saw FDR today! He promised to help us poor famers by creating a thing called the new deal. It is supposed to help and encourage us to diversify and help us get out of debt.
The program AAA helps poor farmers like me. It helpd us cut suppl and increase demand. We diversified our crops , so if one failed we had many more to helps us keep profit.
Now you know what lead to the great depression and some programs under the New Deal.
