Sample text

Fortunately, the United States needed workers. S. men were being called to Europe to fight in World War I (an international war involving several countries), and many others left their jobs as laborers to make arms and ammunition for the war effort. These workers left job openings on railroads, ranches, factories, and farms. ” Rumors spread that they were untrustworthy, even dangerous. These resentments often boiled over into confrontations between Anglos and Mexicans. Mexicans were called derogatory (insulting) names, such as “greasers” (referring to their dark hair) or “wetbacks” (referring to the fact that some immigrants crossed the Rio Grande to get to the United States), and some were even attacked by gangs.

They irrigated (watered) the fields by digging acequias (ah-SAY-kee-ahs), ditches that ran from a nearby river to the fields and funneled river water to the crops. Metal and iron were scarce. As a result, the settlers had to make their own tools, kitchen utensils, carts, and farm equipment out of wood. The Spanish settlers had frequent celebrations. They honored the saints of the Catholic religion with processions and fiestas (festivals), and everyone—old and young, rich and poor—participated in the popular community dance known as the fandango (fahn-DAHN-go).
