Great Depression of the thirties never came to an end. It merely disappeared in the great mobilization of the forties. For a whole generation it became the normal aspect of peacetime life in the United States-the thing to be feared and expected. Measured by its continuing imprint on actions and attitudes, the depression clearly stands with the Civil War as one of the two most important events in American history since the Revolution. For the great majority of Americans World War II, by contrast, was an almost casual and pleasant experience (qtd. in Boardman 132). Works Cited “Battle of Washington.” 8 Aug 1932.
