What struck you in particular as you explored the course materials this week?
Industrial America and Its Discontents, and the World of the Workers Chapter 2 I observed this section to be one of my number one pieces of this class. This nation was based on crafted by migrants, and perhaps the most extravagant man in the nineteenth century was Andrew Carnegie, a steelhead honcho, and a settler. His story was one of the most curiously large poverty to newfound wealth accomplishments in American history. It demonstrated that he experienced the American dream regardless of whether he was a settler.
What insights have you had?
In this class, I have learned that history is instrumental in helping us understand our future better. It helps us focus on what the World has gone through to achieve the much we have today. For instance, an interesting question worth asking is, if the American Women had not fought for their rights and equality in areas such as home life, education, and the workplace, where would we be today? If whites and Blacks had never fought to be seen as equals, where would that leave the World today? Yes, there are still ignorant people today, but we are better off today than we were a decade or a century ago.
