McKinley's Ghost & the Little Tin Truck tells the story of the Millers, a fictional family struggling among the real events of the early 20th century: the end of the Progressive Era, The Great War and influenza pandemic, prohibition, voting rights for women, the conservative take-over, the Red Scare, xenophobic hatred of immigrants and other “inferiors,” lynching and race riots, union-busting, the elevation of “business” in government and the resulting unparalleled corruption, a wild stock market, spiraling income disparity, the Great Depression, national despair and the seeds of the next world war.
Despite the common view of the “Roaring Twenties” as an extended party of gin, jazz, emancipated women, new millionaires and high living, they were not happy times for most people.
