During the 1800 many individuals shaped what we call today the American society and culture. Many settlers’ didn’t know how impactful this would affect in today’s society. Some of the greatest example that changed America was Roger Williams, Alexander Hamilton, Nathanael Greene, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, John Rolfe, William Penn, Benjamin Franklin, and least but not last Thomas Paine. They became well recognized during the 1800 due to their major judgments such as religious issues, politically, economically, and founding new lands in America. In addition, they also left a legacy for many founded colonies in the United States.
When looking at the social and political changes that took place during the early American colonies you can see a steady progression towards ideologies that would lead to the Revolution. When you have different levels of government being put in place by the states depending upon their needs, where rural areas had different court systems than more urban areas, you see a level of independence for governance that the colonists began to see the benefit of having, separate from the rule of the Crown. To counter this increase in independence. the Crown implemented ever changing political positions that could be assigned to those who were loyal to the Crown and the social hierarchy that was prevalent in Britain at the time. These actions of corruption
When people think of the 1970’s, hippies, culture movements, Richard Nixon, and the Vietnam War always seems to come to mind. People today only focus on the major events that are always in the news, they will get bored otherwise. Americans gradually became invested in situations occurring around the world instead of their own country, especially during 1974. Inflation drastically increased across major countries as a result of the increase of the cost of fuel, manufacturing, and food. The aftermath left the world in a chaotic mess.
The 1920s carried much change in society. Some of these changes were more rights for women, jazz music, and prohibition. The people of the 1920s were disillusioned by society lacking in idealism and vision, sense of personal alienation, and Americans were obsessed with materialism and outmoded moral values (The Roaring Twenties).Cultural changes were strongly influenced by the destruction of World War I ending 1918. America needed to recover and with it youth rebelled against the norms of the older generations.
The culture during the 1860s in the United States of America has changed many times and is still changing today. Look back to the times during the Civil War. Clothing was being morphed throughout the decade into different styles and fashions depending on the location of where the people lived such as towns or rural areas. Architecture in the 1860s also had varieties of styles such as the Victorian style.
The first Catholic missionaries, also know as Jesuits, came to New France in 1634 to spread Christianity and European values. The Jesuits established Sainte-Marie-aux-Hurons by the St. Lawrence River in 1639, creating a central base for all missionary work in New France. This paper will examine how the Jesuits ' feelings of superiority over the Huron people led to converting the native population to Christianity. Father Jean de Brébeuf saw both positive and negative aspects of the Huron confederacy. One aspect of the American Indians’ culture he approved of was their marriage customs.
Introduction Commonly known as Monseñor Romero, he spoke out against poverty, social injustice, assassinations and torture. His spiritual life was based in the spirituality of Opus Dei, an institution of the Roman Catholic Church that teaches that everyone is called to holiness and that ordinary life is a path to sanctity.

During the 1920s, Word War I had just ended and people were ready to celebrate. Although 1920 had its good times and perks, some bad things were going on, like cultural clashes. The first major cultural clash was the Great Migration. The Great Migration is known as the relocation of more than 6 million African Americans from the rural south to the urban north cities. The second major cultural clash was the national origins act.
If you were to halt a random person on the streets of a large city and ask them to explain exactly how America came to be, chances are they wouldn’t be able to answer solidly. Well, unless they happen to be a history teacher. Although, most American citizens don’t even know who the ruler of England was when the 13 colonies came. There’s a lot of misconceptions, too. Like how Columbus ‘discovered’ America and that George Washington was the first president.
The Romantic period gets its name from Romanticism-a term used to depict a development in craftsmanship, writing, and music that esteemed flexibility of expression. In America, Romanticism supported the thought that a lady 's place was in the home. Before this period, ladies were dealt with more such as workers than wives. Ladies now had the chance to take part in relaxation exercises and frame fellowships with other ladies. In 1830-1835, Evening dresses were the same silhouette as the day dress, however necklines were brought down and off the shoulder, the chemisette was surrendered, and sleeves and skirts shortened.
ome significant reform movements that impacted society were Labor reform and women's rights. In the 1900’s, particularly 1910 women were not respected and seen as second-class citizens. Woman were brought up as children to learn to serve others and focus on the men before there own. They were expected to be full time wives and mothers, and not having an option on how to live.

Historically the United States of America is looked at as one the most powerful and successful countries in the world. To think this wasn’t always the case is bizarre. It all started as thirteen little colonies that were under British control. Many things played a part in making the country what it is today. It would have been nice to look at it as one specific event, but it was many political, economic and social factors that led to the American Revolution.
I think the biggest change in the west was the economically and the socially. At the time of the Civil War in Mississippi millions of fertile acres, that in this state had minerals, and herbs for buffalos that provide food, clothing and shelter for all the Indians the live there. Referring to the book “Give Me Liberty by Eric Foner in the Chapter 16 America’s Gilded Age”. The change starts when the white settlers move to Western region, after Western farmers from the Revolution time, they immigrate into Ohio, Indiana, and Illinoi, and it was an empty space. By the eighteen century in California the Indian the land that look like a paradise start changing to small little town creating railroads, mini companies in the West by the order of members
Many people come from vast variety of cultures that consists of different ideas and beliefs. In today’s culture we tend to live in a fast paced, growing environment. Sexism has been very controversial topic for decades and gender roles have been changed drastically throughout the past decades. People in America in the 1930’s were very conservative and had strict rules and ideas that had to be followed. The moment a male or a female did anything out of their gender’s role; it was misunderstood and looked upon as a sin.
The 1920’s were a major step backwards for many reasons, including what I believe, to be the most important issue which was racism. After WWI, many people began to feel frightened about foreigners, “Immigrants were also despised due to the postwar flood of available workers and the dwindling of available positions.” (From Lecture) A strong hatred was directed towards African Americans who began migrating to more urban areas during WWI due to available job positions, especially by the renown organization the Ku Klux Klan who, “…did it’s part to take social justice into their own hands and discriminate against immigrants, African Americans, and numerous other “undesirables”.” The KKK would savagely hunt, perform “surgery below the belt”, and
