Since the close of WWI, the United States had followed a foreign policy of isolationism and neutrality. As the 1930s drew to a close, the rise of Hitler in Germany and of Mussolini in Italy, and the continued aggression of Japan in the Pacific led to war in Europe and a change in United States foreign policy. The nation began serious preparations for the possible entry into this European war. That change in policy began to manifest itself throughout Kershaw County.
