Today we talked about some of the business, societal, and political issues facing Americans during the Gilded Age today. We started with a DocBlock over the essay "Social Darwinism" by William Graham Sumner. We then examined some images by Jacob Riis and Lewis Hine and examined a set of primary sources on Political Machines.
