I need to know what was going on around that time, and a brief synopsis of the gas mask itself. And when Garrett Morgan invented the gas mask, and how it affected the society. I really need information on the event itself. Please and thank you, I will cite you. After looking around, I learned — He invented the gas mask and it was widely used in WW1 to combat poisonous gases. He also invented the street lights. Red for stop and green for go, and later, an amber color to warn that the light was about to be red.
