The period of time between 1900 and 1941 was punctuated by a dramatic increase in mass media production including film, recordings, and photography. The following primary source set and the Library of Congress showcase many of the most well-known sources from the time collected for classroom use. Topics include the Women’s Suffrage movement, the Harlem Renaissance, and the Great Depression. The set explores such a wide range of topics through the use of primary source materials such as political cartoons, sheet music, and digital photographs. Among the resources is a film of Theodore Roosevelt in the Amazon Basin, WWI propaganda posters, and thousands of Puck magazine political cartoons. The source set also features a large number of Library of Congress lesson plans available for use.    View more details, and download or access the primary source set online. Emerging America brings this primary source set to you thanks to the outstanding primary sources and materials provided free by the Library of Congress.
