Summary
The 1900s began with British troops in South Africa. While the death of Queen Victoria cast a somber mood over the nation, Edward VII restored a sense of optimism. The decade ended on a note of violence with suffragette militancy and political upheaval. Voices of ordinary people mix with those of Lord Baden-Powell, Ben Travers, Marconi, Sylvia Pankhurst, Violet Bonham-Carter, and H.H. Asquith
