The United States after winning the Pacific and Atlantic War against Japan and Hitler's regime went into a very prosperous time in their history. Many of soldiers returned home which lead to an influx of job's and opportunities for marriage. It was during this time that we had the period of the baby boomers were born, many of whom are your mom's and dad's today. The economy of the United States accelerated around the country, leading to one of the most successful economies in United States history. An example could be Levittown's which was created under a man named Levit who created houses at an inexpensive price. They were basically the same house so they could be mass produced and gave the soldiers who just returned home to the country a home.
