Today we focused on the explosion of business and industry in the 1870's through the 1890's. We talked about how industrialists were viewed at the time both by those that supported them and those that opposed their practices. We completed a DocBlock over the essay "Social Darwinism" by William graham Sumner then explored some of the historical questions that arise from a few of the great strike actions of the era.
We did not get to complete our DocBlock analysis of Andrew Carnegie's "The Gospel of Wealth," so you need to do that this weekend. Also, be sure to finish up Chapter 20 and 21.1 for Monday. Have a great weekend!
