One part of GCSE History is the history of the USA between 1840 and 1975. The 1920s is one aspect of this topic looked at in great detail. This is the third of three quizzes on 1920s America and it looks in particular at the Wall Street Crash of 1929 which led to the Great Depression of the 1930s.
Wall Street was the centre of finance in the USA but when the New York Stock Exchange spiralled out of control in October 1929, investors saw the price of shares crash to new lows and many small investors were ruined. The immediate effects included bank closures, reduced production and factory closures - leading to a massive rise in unemployment and the start of the Great Depression.
