The Great Depression began when the never-ending party of the Roaring Twenties came to a sudden half. On October 29, 1929, which became known as Black Tuesday, the stock market crashed, starting a downward economic slide. David K. Fremon recounts the fascinating events leading to the crash of the New York Stock Exchange, and tells of personal tales as a quarter of hard-working people were without jobs, banks failed, businesses were wiped out, and the Great Depression began. This book is developed from The Great Depression in American History to allow republication of the original text into ebook, paperback, and trade editions.
