HIST 55500 - The Emergence of Modern America, 1865-1916


Credit Hours: 3.00. An examination of the nation that emerged emotionally exhausted from a civil war to become, by the eve of World War I, a land seemingly destined to achieve a degree of perfection not previously attained by the human community. The interaction of a flourishing industrial establishment, floods of immigrants, rapid urbanization, and smoldering racism combined to transform antebellum America into a complex and relatively sophisticated society during those years. Emphasis will be placed upon an analysis of these forces and the men who tried to control them. Typically offered Spring Fall Summer.
