lil update

download (1)this week we have gotten into the cold war – (see the prior post for a in depth look at where we are headed) – today we finished up 15.2 notes – this second section of the text dealt with the US at home – with a focus on the GI Bill – the consumerism that started back up – the baby boom – expansion of union power – and the change in politics at the time with the elections of 1946 and 48…the first section of chapter 15 we discussed/took notes on how the US “set itself up” as the other super power in – this dealt with containment policy – the Truman Doctrine and the Marshall plan and how we competed with the USSR for control as we positioned ourself around the world.
