    between 1900 and 2000 hello a lot happened. Jfk was shot, 1963, elvis presley died, i think 1976 more recently in well, oklahoma bombing, the twin tower 2001, the space shuttle in 1986, i was in school senior yr when it was announced what happened and then 3 of my dear friends were killed in a freak accident in march 1986 but that's personal. Everything affects the world in so many ways it's impossible to explain.

    the riots in harlem ? that was injustice there, racism. that affects everyone.

    Great Depression(whole world)-created a stronger federal bank and government

    WWII-brought US out of isolationism

    Cold War-US became an internationalist nation

    Islamic Fundamentalist Movement-we lost Iran as our ally and the "war on terror"

    Israel- we supported them and now Arab nations hate the US.

    US oil embargo-we realized how foreign oil is important during the 70's

    Not much happened in the 20th century. Only two world wars, numerous little wars (Korea, Vietnam, Bosnia, etc.), the foundation of Israel as a state and I am sure some other things happened.
