  3. Dawes Act of 1887 (Native Americans)
  4. 19th Amendment (women’s right to vote)
  5. Immigration Acts of 1917, 1924, 1965
  6. Ku Klux Klan in 1920’s
  7. 1920’s Red Scare (see Palmer raids)
  8. Mexican-American deportation during Great Depression
  9. Japanese Internment: Executive Order 9066
