Summary

For more than a century, the United States had experienced constant change as technological advances united the country by communication, transportation, currency, and power. As the forward-thinking members of society continued to reinvent the lives of their fellow citizens with their products and devices, it seemed as if change was everywhere. In the last decade of the 19th century, America continued to define its identity through industrial progress, domestic reform, an expansionist foreign policy, and the millions of new immigrants arriving at its shores. In this informative new title, explore how the United States transitioned from a rural nation into an industrial giant thanks to progressivism during the Gilded Age.
