In many ways the United States was more united than ever, but their was also some problems that arose.

Why is it that the meat we eat can be made with animals, even rats, running over it? I believe that more regulation should be put on the owners so that the meat is clean, without “...meat that had tumbled out on the floor...where the workers had tramped and spit..and thousands of rats would race about it.” (Doc.
