America in the 1920's: Red Scare

The Red Scare

The Red Scare

The fear of communism increased after a series of strikes in Boston in 1919. Boston's police went on strike and hundreds of thousands of steel and coal workers did the same. Also, there were several series of bomb explosions. There was a failed attempt to blow up A. Mitchell Palmer, the attorney general at the time. On New Year's Day, in 1920, over 6,000 people were arrested and put in jail.

The Red Scare refers to the fear of communism in the United States of America in the 1920's. It has been said that there were over 150,000 communists or anarchists in the USA in 1920 alone. This represented only 0.01% of the population at the time. However, many Americans were scared of the communists.
