I have to do a research paper, and I need some historical events that are mentioned in Ethan Frome that actually happened in the early 1900s.

Edith Wharton wrote Ethan Frome in the early 1900's, a time marked by a prosperity in Americas, which was characterized by our strength and increasing political power among the nations. WWI was over and the Allies were victorious, women's suffrage was moving to the forefront, capitalism and labor unions were in conflict. In fact, a long strike by the carpenter's union was the reason our narrator was visiting Starkfield.
