The Age Of The Common Man

5 pages in length. The span of years between the 1820s and the 1840s has come to be known as The Age of the Common Man, an historical period in time in which many important changes took place in American society with regard to political, economical and social concerns. Indeed, one of the most critical aspects of this particular era was the fact that political reforms were designed as a means by which to place more power into hands of the common man; however, these designs were not without counter movements that attempted to impede such progress. Religion, too, played an integral role in the overall establishment of social shaping and reformation, as did the changing role of family and women's traditional place within the social structure. Additionally, the growth of immigration and the slave system had made their way to the forefront of American concern. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

Growth Of Industrialism After The War Of 1812

5 pages in length. The growth of industrialism after the War of 1812 served to improve relations between the North and West, yet the South did not share in the same industrial growth as a result in the rise of sectionalism. The changing face of the United States throughout the industrial and post-industrial eras appears to have called into question some of the fundamental assumptions of traditional American liberal ideology. Clearly, one can readily surmise that such ideology has been transformed in response to the social and economic changes that have occurred since the late-nineteenth century. To what extent did the core assumptions of sectionalism continue to dominate American political culture? When one considers the growth of industrialism after the Revolutionary War, it becomes clear that sectionalism, in and of itself, was at least partly responsible for some of these changes, many of which had to do with labor. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

The Progressive Era and American Values

A 5 page overview of the factors influencing the formation and change of values. This paper observes that here have been certain shifts in values in U.S. society over the country’s brief two-hundred year history. In turn, there have been numerous factors to which each of these shifts can be attributed. Our values have changed both as a reflection of the president and other major leaders of the time and as a reflection of the social situation of the time. The American values of hard work, profit maximization, and protection of the rights of the American worker have roots which go well into our history, to the Progressive Era in particular. This paper asserts that there has been an unfortunate degradation of the values which resulted in the movement over time, however. While the value of profit maximization is still in place in American society, the values of hard work and protection of the rights of American worker are slowly falling by the wayside.
