"New Era Rag," 1919



THE ROARING 20s is a collaborative effort by faculty and students in history at Montgomery College to investigate, create and share their knowledge of one of the most colorful decades in American history. Students develop web pages dealing with one subject, trend or aspect of American life during that decade and provide links to other sites and related pages. What follows is the fruit of this effort. Thus this site is, and will remain, a work in progress.
