US History Midterm

1) 100% Americanism : After World War I, deep feelings of patriotism and anti-German sentiment gave rise to the 100 Percent Americanism movement. The movement celebrated all things American while it attacked ideas (and people) it viewed as foreign and/or anti-American. Wilson supported this, 4 minute men gave speeches to create this atmosphere. Creel Committee (Committee on public information) advocated this as well in order to create unity.
2) 16th Amendment : This amendment gives the federal government the power to tax a person's income. These income taxes can be used to pay for the government's new programs. Taxes are not based on a flat rate but can change according to the amount of income earned. The richer you are, the more taxes you pay. If you're poor, you get a break. Paying for larger forces meant raising money; thus, the 16th amendment.
3) 17th Amendment : It amends Article 1 Section 3 of the Constitution to provide for the direct election of Senators by the people of a state rather than their election or appointment by a state legislature, thus effectively eliminating state representation in Congress. It was passed and ratified during the Progressive Era. Popular election of senators - This amendment lets the people from each state elect their state's senators. Prior to this, Senators were appointed by the state legislature, which could be manipulated. Part of the New Deal.

People smuggled alcohol because of it. Part of moral values of progressive era.
5) 19th Amendment : Gave women the right to vote. Women were encouraged to support the war effort by joining the Red Cross, buying war bonds, and working in factories • Approximately 1M women joined the labor force for the first time, especially in higher paying industrial jobs. • The war had a profound impact on the women’s suffrage movement (safe for democracy); the 19th amendment was finally ratified in 1920. • Doing work that had been done by men, received higher wages. • Making up for their male family members in the war who couldn’t earn them money any longer. • Thought patriotism would grant them right to vote. Used Wilson’s words against him (making the world safe for democracy, democracy in the rest of the world?) • Effort very successful. Women over 21 the right to vote. The war was a primary motivator to the timing of the amendment.
