Storyboard Text

  • 1865 to 1889
  • 1900 to End of World War 1
  • End of WWI to 1930
  • The Civil War was just coming to an end at this time period. Once torn apart, the United States had to find a way to revitalize themselves. During the Reconstruction, sports such as baseball grew in popularity in both the college and professional levels. This gave citizens an event to watch and enjoy. 
  • 1931 to 1950
  • During this time period, the Olympics grew in popularity. Every country around the world would have their best athletes train and participate in this event. The winning country would have "bragging rights," which inspired young people to participate in athletics in order to someday reach this event. Athletes, young and old, would begin training to reach their full potential. 
  • 1951 to 1970
  • The 1920s is also known as the "Roaring 20s," because of how entertaining the time was said to be. This was a prime time in American and worldwide sports. Athletes such as Babe Ruth would take over the industry, inspiring young people around the globe to pick up a baseball. However, this time would take a turn for the worst in 1929, the year the Great Depression hit. 
  • 1971 to Present
  • The Stock Market Crash Crippled the United States economy. Adolf Hitler would also rise to power in Germany in this time period. Eventually, World War 2 would begin in 1939. During this time, women's sports grew in popularity, as able-bodied men were drafted into the service. 
  • After the Depression and WWII, many were left with nothing. Education would take a hit, some schools even had to drop physical education. President Eisenhower and Kennedy would start the Presidential Fitness Test to stop this. The test would make a benchmark for students to work for, instilling hard work into the youth. 
  • Today, we live in the most advanced era of sports. Athletes are bigger, faster, and stronger than ever. Events such as Woodstock, Vietnam, Watergate, the Reagan Era, and Desert Storm helped form the 21st century and its technology. Companies such as Nike use this technology to help propel athletes further into the future.
