Roaring isn’t the primary term in the 1920s, although that label became prevalent over time, and has been associated with many major events. One of the most often noted events occurred at the onset of World War I. During that time “roaring” also became the catchphrase for the excitement that followed the war.

In 1929, the National Park Service created a World War I exhibit at the Cincinnati History Museum, called “The Roaring Twenties.” The exhibit featured historical posters of events such as the Battle of Shiloh Ridge, the first major battle in the Civil War, the destruction at Belle Isle, the opening of the Panama Canal and the U.S.S. Rensselaer’s capture of San Francisco Bay.

Roaring Twenties celebrations continue to be a regular part of Cincinnati’s summer and fall festivals. A 1929 World Champs event named after the “Roaring 20’s” took place in Hyde Park on July 29. And on August 18, 1933, Roaring Twenties Day celebrated the 1920s with the “Roaring Twenties Festival”.

Where did “Roaring” come from?

The origins of the term “Roaring” can be traced back to American Indians in the westward frontier. But, it wasn’t the Americans. According to the Encyclopedia Americana, the term “Roaring” is actually a Native American word that means “wild.”

A Texas lawmaker who called for the execution of all gay men, whether or not they pose a serious threat to women and children has been ousted from a congressional committee by the leadership of his Democratic colleagues.

Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, a Democrat from Texas and member of the Senate’s Health and Human Services Committee, told CNN she was fired Friday from the Committee on Women and Girls after accusing her Republican colleagues of “disingenuous tactics.”

“I was terminated by the Democratic leadership of the committee,” Johnson said. “I am a strong supporter of women’s health, but I cannot see how my own staff could be perceived as doing more harm to women and girls in need than the Republican leadership which is attempting to prevent women from having access to necessary health care.”

In a blog post responding to the firing, the Republican-majority House Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions said its three Democrats had no intention of taking any action against Johnson, and a spokeswoman refused to confirm that she was responsible. Johnson’s spokeswoman, Amy Thoburn
