Native-born Americans, especially those of small towns and rural areas, rallied in the 1920s to protect American values. What did they see as threatening those values? How did they seek to protect them? Do any Americans today see similar threats, and if so, how are they responding?

Some people saw many things threatening their way of life -- immigrants, urbanization, alcohol, women's rights, women cutting their hair short and wearing pants, radio, jazz, and "immoral" dancing -- among other things. They tried to vote for candidates who believed the same way they did.
What do you think about today's Americans and similar threats?
