Westward expansion had an economical impact on the North and South’s separation in many ways. For every set of land gained, one would be a free state and the other a slave state. The South used its gained land for agricultural improvement, while the North constructed factories and manufacturing buildings to strengthen its industrial economy. Although expansion gave America more opportunities and potential economic growth, expansion also affected the relationship between the North and the South: both groups disputed over several U.S.
In a sense, America is what it is today because of every challenge, every victory, every defeat it has faced. With each victory over the Native Americans, America gained new territory. Even slavery holds a place in the development of the western frontier. The allowance and disallowance of slavery existed in the new frontier depending on each territory’s popular choice. Instead of having separate states with split decisions and “ignoring the huge elephant (slavery) in the room,” the frontier proposed the idea of having a uniform decision where slavery was either illegal or legal in all territories, thus introducing the idea of democracy.
“He is an American who, leaving behind him all his ancient prejudices and manners, receives new ones from the new mode of life he has embraced.” In the quote Crevecoeur shows that the prejudice life that Europeans were living is no longer an issue due to the movement or migration of Europeans to the American colonies. Crevecoeur’s repetition of the word “new” shows that it truly is a new beginning and a change in life for everyone. It is no longer the old way of life and they are no longer labeled as the poor or the weak, but now everyone is equal and nobody has
It is in this context that farmers and industrial workers responded to industrialization in the Gilded Age from 1865-1900 in their own significant ways. Farmers organized the Granger Movement and Farmers Alliance to deal with industrialization. Industrial workers formed the Knights of Labor and American Federation of Labor in response to industrialization. Farmers responded to industrialization in the Gilded Age from 1865-1900 in two significant ways, which included the Granger Movement and Farmer’s Alliance. The lives of farmers changed as their lifestyle had to adapt to the creation of mechanized railroad agriculture and the dependence of railroad companies.
American Revolution DBQ The American Revolution changed American society politically, socially, and economically, as the American colonists overcame their differences and broke away from British rule. During the American revolution, Americans began to develop different political views than that of their European counterparts. Following the Revolution, the Americans created a new type of national government, a republic.
In these letters De Crevecoeur addresses how America is a new type of person. This new type of person De Crevecoeur refers to are the individuals who came to America during the frontier. These individuals came from all over and hold different beliefs. De Crevecoeur finds that “Diverse nationalities and faiths, he said, might well ‘melt’ into a more peaceful, justice-loving, and prosperous original, and it should be the envy of the world” (Horwitz 23). The frontier brought about a whole new race of individuals who could bring a whole new perspective.
This regionalism is an obsession and perhaps the most significant change to the country over recent decades has been the creation of seventeen autonomías - autonomous regions - with their own governments, budgets and cultural ministries. The old days of a unified nation, governed with a firm hand from Madrid, seem to have gone forever, as the separate kingdoms which made up the original Spanish state reassert themselves. And the differences are evident wherever you look: in language, culture and artistic traditions, in landscapes and cityscapes, and attitudes and politics. The cities - above all - are compellingly individual.
The North and South were already divided prior to the surge of exploration and conquering known as Manifest Destiny, which was largely fueled by new inventions, such as trains and the telegraph. The North had an economy quite contrary to that of the South. The North was industrializing, and the industry was quickly booming, producing many goods and boosting the North’s’ economy. The South, on the other hand, depended on its constant, slow, agricultural growth. This divide was dwarfed by the main problem that was always a challenge for the United States to deal with.
Many Enlightenment thinkers and philosophers tried to bring reforms to governments during the 1600s and 1700s. Those new ideas and thoughts brought huge impact and development mostly on Europe, but they also influenced a lot in other parts of the world such as United Sates. Enlightenment thinkers and philosophers such as John Locke, Rousseau, Montesquieu, Voltaire, and Adam Smith inspired many people to think in a new ways, challenging traditional
Civilization means to develop in society, to grow towards a higher advancement. In The Epic of Gilgamesh, N.K. Sanders, the main character Gilgamesh goes on many journeys with his friend or brother Enkidu. Throughout the book Gilgamesh and Enkidu go through stages, or transitions that change who they are mentally and physically. They both change in the end, but Gilgamesh change is more mentally than physically. Gilgamesh’s transition from the way he acted before Enkidu and after Enkidu, Enkidu’s transition from having more of an animalistic nature to becoming a more civilized being, and Before Enkidu, Gilgamesh was seen has only a king, he was seen as the man who knew everything.
I believe that with assistance from the government, my vision can become reality. The economy of the United States is undergoing a massive industrialization as we move away from manual labor more and more to rely on towering factories, machinery and mills to complete jobs that were once done by hand. While it creates a more robust
The Progressive Era from the 1890s to 1920s was a period that experienced extensive social activism and political reforms across the United States. This movement was spurred by the heightened level of corruption and injustice of large corporations and in government at that time. The movement primarily comprised of “liberals who wanted to reform and regulate their capitalist society and not destroy it. " There were several pushes to make the political process more open and transparent. One of which was the adaptation of the direct primary elections and to grant the Presidents more powers to regulate new laws.
In the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century America, The West, Industrial and Financial growth, Immigration, and Technological Innovation all took part in the society change in America. The change that resulted from these four things was that the American society would begin as a rural agricultural society and then would transform into an industrial metropolitan society. Major issues like the wipe out of bison in the West, American Indians being confined to reservations, the American Civil War, the capacity of the American Industry, bankers allowing businessmen large amounts of money to expand operations, and many other events and actions would lead to a more industrialized American society. The West had an impact on societies development because, with the completion of the railroads, it brought major economic development and opened up areas of the West for settlement.
The past history for Americans convey the idea of despotism and tyranny by the government. Therefore, Sullivan utilize the idea of American’s past to justify the idea of expansion for the reason that Sullivan wants to persuade Americans that the expansion to the west would build a renovated and great nation. Moreover, Sullivan illustrates the idea of a new government that will bring equality and freedom that Americans did not have under the control of the Mother Land, Great Britain. Sullivan demonstrates this idea in his work when he writes “On the contrary, our nation birth was the beginning of a new history, the formation and progress of an untried political system, which separates us form the past and connects us with the future only; and
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
