The decade following World War I was known as the "Roaring Twenties," and sports were no exception, from Babe Ruth's fateful trade to the New York Yankees to a transcontinental footrace from Los Angeles to New York. Following this decade of letting loose was the more somber 1930s, a time of worldwide economic depression. Jesse Owens's four gold medals at the 1936 Berlin Olympics and War Admiral's Triple Crown win served as beacons of light for a downtrodden nation. Learn about these events, and many more, in 1920–1939, Second Edition.
