Rains 1 Josiah Rains HIS 202 Prof. Franklin 10/20/19 Farmers Lifestyle in Poverty In 1929, the world saw a prolonged economic recession dubbed the “Great Depression.” Most everyone, especially the middle class, was faced with challenges and felt the devastating effects of the Depression, but some groups were crippled more than others. One of those groups were rural farmers. Farmers, even through hard work, found great difficulty in attempts to improve their lives or even stay afloat during the Great Depression due to both economic and natural forces. Throughout the Great Depression, the economy was not at its peek at all. Because of catastrophes, such as the Dust Bowl, farmers weren’t allowed to keep a circular system of trade and goods revolving because of the lack of rain and lack of growth. This lead to many farmers’ complete poverty, having to leave their occupation from loss of money and losing their homes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
