The Red Scare website is an image database focussing on the history of the United States in the period immediately following the end of the First World War and the widespread concern at social and political upheaval. It provides access to almost 300 images - photographs and political cartoons - reproduced primarily from contemporary newspapers and magazines of that time. The collection can be searched by subject or chronologically. A list of headings - arranged alphabetically - is available. Each image is accompanied by a list of keywords which link the record to related entries within the database. Full text of the images' captions is reproduced to enhance legibility.
