Although it is a decade now long gone, "the Roaring Twenties" was a remarkably defining time in American history which saw the rise of new ideas, attitudes, and distinct cultural changes. Many iconic images and symbols of the cultural evolution are famously associated with the twenties, such as jazz music, flappers, Prohibition, and economic prosperity. The flamboyancy, changes in attitude, and progressions in various aspects of culture clearly defined the era, and the overall changes that occurred during the 1920s truly revolutionized American culture. Overall, the decade of the Roaring Twenties was simultaneously a distinct break from tradition and a guide for what would soon become a more modern America.
