They also were looking for Bin Laden and the al-Qaeda. The war lasted many years but it made an impact on the road to revolution. It showed that the US won't allow attacks like that and that they would send their military in if needed. (Photo: The Afghanistan War, history.com)

  • The Great Recession

    The Great Recession
    In the year 2008 the United States economy went through a huge depression. The increase in subprime mortgages and credit default swamps made the people feel very prosperous at the time. However the market reached its peak, stalled, and then crashed. People who just bought homes could not sell them and could not afford to pay for them. This was an important step on the road to revolution because it shaped the economy into what it looks like today. (Photo: Job Seekers, federalreservehistory.com)
