  30. I believe that Warren G. Harding was an important, but not very effective, figure in the Roaring 20s. I think this because he was elected the 29th U.S. president, on his birthday, and served from 1921 to 1923, after World War I. During his term he made campaign promising a "return to normalcy."I also learned that most historians consider Warren G. Harding to be one of America's worst presidents. He is believed to have seen the role of president as mainly ceremonial, leaving government work to subordinates.

  49. One inventor from the Roaring 20`s was Henry Ford. He was an amazing business man and as we all know he made the "Ford Car". He also came up with the idea of assembly lines. He paid his workers more than the regular wage and he made lots of money. If it was not with out him all those people who drive " Ford Cars" would be forced to switch to another brand.

  53. The Roaring 20's is a special term for the 1920's, which was an economic boost with a small, but noticeable cultural edge, especially in greatly known cities. For example: New York, Paris, Los Angeles. The U.S.A.'s economy actually doubled! Lots of new inventions, such as the traffic light & 3-D movies , actually helped that boost.
