1919 at 100 (Session 2) (Video conference from UMass to Braintree and Hingham)  

This year marks the centennial of the calendar year 1919. Following the end of the Great War of 1914?1918, America was rocked by labor unrest and bombings. A Red Scare swept the nation. What sinister forces were behind the Black Sox World Series scandal? A fatal influenza epidemic overwhelmed the resources of the medical community. Women voted, bobbed their hair, and smoked in public. World War I was where the 19th and 20th centuries parted ways forever. In the 1920 election, presidential nominee Warren Harding campaigned on a return to “normalcy.” Monday and Tuesday sessions are exactly the same. Please sign up for one session only.
