America was faced with a choice: stick with what they have always known or create a new era of change. There are several significant events that highlighted the split between the “two Americas” including Prohibition, the rise of the Ku Klux Klan, evolution and the Scopes “Monkey” trial, mass consumerism, and changing attitudes about gender roles, sex, and Women’s rights.

In the late 1800’s, two women, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, quickly realized that women would not be able to share their political views unless given the right to vote. Because of the fact that women had basically no other societal roles besides housework, they were not respected during this time period.

However, this surprisingly did not have a great affect the lives of Americans
Anyone can affirm that there were many events that occurred or time periods during US history that changed life as we know it. There have been wars, and each had its own effect on the citizens of the United States. On a smaller scale, there have been movements that have also changed America drastically. One of these movements, which is also one of the more recent ones of them all, was the Progressive Era (1890’s-1920’s).

After the Civil War, the everyday life of the American people was reconstructed in more ways than one. Besides the nation becoming a democracy of the people, it also became a democracy of tangible objects (Boorstin 412). After the war, farmers and ranchers had to establish new ways to produce better and more food from their land to then supply to the nation. Establishing new planting and growing methods was no simple task, but was eventually accomplished. For farmers to gain access to the tools and supply nations with food, a fast, vast and simple method of transportation was needed. And
The bringing of the textile mill to America by Samuel Slater was one event that had a great impact on many aspects of American society. These machines were able to spin thread and weave cloth at a speed and at such a high volume unequalled by hand weavers. The factories changed many things in the Northeast, as the area became factory dominated, and the structure of families changed. Young women were now going to work in the textile mills instead of staying at family farms. The women in the mills formed friendships and clubs with each other as well. As more people moved to work in the factories, the areas grew and became more crowded in a process called urbanization.
