The World War II, The Great Depression, and the Cold war all played factors into what our pacific Northwest is today. Even if there was a decade of economic struggle the Pacific Northwest was still employing settlers with their innovative productions and thanks to the War, many job opportunities sky rocketed with the mass productions of war equipment even though it affected demographics in the sense that a few areas were needed to be cleared to produce equipment such as the Hanford nuclear plant site. But the rise Employment in the Pacific Northwest is what helped the War and what helped shaped the Pacific Northwest with having historical innovations of war productions and sites where those equipment’s were produced. It also made a demographical history in the Pacific Northwest in the War areas. After this taking this course I realized the importance on the history of the PNW, I learned many things that I did not know before that I can now refer back to whenever driving around the Pacific Northwest. 14 Schwantes, Carlos Arnaldo.
