During the 1920s a lot of rural Banks had begun to start closing their door. Along with the Agricultures started to struggle too, because of world war one. Farmers really struggled because banks were foreclosures and the ones who didn't get their land taken away started loosing a ton of money. In 1930 cities and town dwellers were not doing good anymore. And a lot of people were now getting into riots and violence mainly in the city. Farmers now lost even more money and more farmers had faced foreclosure,but their was still farmers they were doing good even better than some City people.
