Summary
"In 1917 when Americans went off to war, the red, white, and blue flew everywhere. Two million American soldiers went to France and fifty thousand of them died; the battle of the Meuse-Argonne was one of the costliest in American history. With the announcement by America's allies that the United States's contributions to the war were insignificant compared to their own, President Wilson's leadership began to collapse. Also, the domestic economy's boom was turning to a bust and the national debt was expanding. The general consensus of Americans was that "things had gone to hell in a handbasket."" "In an effort to case the minds of troubled and confused Americans, President Harding tried to provide them with inspiration. Addressing different groups of the populace - mothers, veterans, patriots, farmers, businessmen, the press - he sought to send a consistent personal message of reassurance."--BOOK JACKET.
