Americans pull together

Americans Pull Together

  • Throughout the country, people pulled together to help one another.

    • Neighbors in difficult circumstances helped those they saw as worse off than themselves.

  • When banks foreclosed on a farm, neighboring farmers would bid pennies on land and machines, which they would then return to the original owners. These sales became known as penny auctions.

  • Some Americans called for radical political and economic change.

    • They believed that a fairer distribution of wealth would help to end the hard times.

    • Jokes and humor helped many people to fight everyday despair.

Chapter 22 SECTION 4 – The Election of 1932

When the economy…


Hoover s limited strategy

Hoover’s Limited Strategy

WRITE THIS DOWN!

  • Hoover convinced business leaders to help maintain public confidence in the economy.

  • To protect domestic industries, Congress passed the Hawley-Smoot tariff, the highest import tax in history.

    • European countries also raised their tariffs, and international trade suffered a slowdown.

  • Hoover set up the Reconstruction Finance Corporation (RFC), which gave government credit to banks, industries, railroads, and insurance companies.

    • The theory was that prosperity at the top would help the economy as a whole.

    • Many Americans saw it as helping bankers and big businessmen, while ordinary people went hungry.

    • Hoover did not support federal public assistance because he believed it would destroy people’s self-respect and create a large bureaucracy.


The bonus army

THE BONUS ARMY

  • Finally, public opinion soured for Hoover when he called the United States Army to disband a protest of 20,000 unemployed World War I veterans called the Bonus Army.

    • Between June and July 1932, thousands of WWI veterans converged on Washington, D.C. to demand payment of a bonus promised in 1924 and redeemable in 1945.

  • The ‘Bonus Army’ encamped at ‘Anacostia Flats’ outside D.C. hoping to pressure Congress into releasing the money early.

    • The House voted to pay the promised bonus of $2.4 billion – the Republican-controlled Senate rejected it

WRITE THIS DOWN!


Unpopular actions

Unpopular Actions

  • Hoover and many Republicans viewed the ‘Bonus Army’ as bums and communists with the potential to riot in the Capitol and spark nationwide uprisings.

    • Fearing that possibility, Hoover ordered Gen. Douglas MacArthur to evacuate the ‘Bonus Marchers’ from the city without invading their camp

  • On July 28th, MacArthur led a force consisting of 500 armed soldiers, supported by five tanks, through the encampment during which the camp was burned, several veterans were injured, and one ‘Bonus Baby’ allegedly died from the effects of tear gas

  • This incident, known to many as the ‘Battle of Anacostia Flats’, further damaged the once-popular Hoover’s public image and helped seal Hoover’s fate in the 1932 presidential election.

    • President Hoover’s Democratic opponent in the Election of 1932 was Franklin Delano Roosevelt


A new deal for america

A “New Deal” for America

  • FDR promised a New Deal for the American people.

    • He was ready to experiment with government roles in an effort to end the Depression.

    • As governor of New York, Roosevelt had set up an unemployment commission and a relief agency.

  • FDR’s wife, Eleanor, was an experienced social reformer.

    • She worked for public housing legislation, state government reform, birth control, and better conditions for working women.

  • When the Roosevelt’s campaigned for the presidency, they brought their ideas for political action with them.

WRITE THIS DOWN!


The election of 1932

Herbert Hoover

Believed that federal government should not try to fix people’s problems.

Argued that federal aid and government policies to help the poor would alter the foundation of our national life.

He argued for voluntary aid to help the poor and argued against giving the national government more power.

Hoover gave very few campaign speeches and was jeered by crowds.

Franklin Roosevelt

Believed that government had a responsibility to help people in need.

Called for a reappraisal of values and more controls on big business.

Helped many Americans reassess the importance of “making it on their own” without any help.

Much of his support came from urban workers, coal miners, and immigrants in need of federal relief.
