HIS 204 Week 2 DQ 2 America\'s Age of Imperialism

The History of Reconstruction. Many Americans like to imagine the history of their nation as one of continual progress. While acknowledging that not all persons and groups enjoyed equal rights at all times, Americans often take it for granted that American history moves in only one direction: toward greater rights, greater freedom, and greater equality.

HIS 204 Week 1 DQ 1 The History of Reconstruction

HIS 204 Week 1 DQ 2 The Industrial Revolution

HIS 204Tutorials

The Industrial Revolution. Too much corporate influence in politics; the specter of socialist policies undermining capitalism and individual freedoms; a middle class in apparent decline; waves of immigration which threatened to alter the character of American society; new technologies which introduced new social problems as well as offering new opportunities

1. Question : In what year did the United States reach a milestone in which more people lived in urban areas than farms?

2. Question : The Dawes Act was significant because it demanded what from Native Americans?

3. Question : One of the most significant examples of corrupt business practices during the Gilded Age occurred in which industry?

HIS 204 Week 1 Quiz

HIS 204 Week 2 DQ 1 The Progressive Movement

HIS 204Tutorials

The Progressive Movement. The Progressive Movement was a complicated, even contradictory, phenomenon which sometimes pushed for the expansion of popular democracy while at other times, or even simultaneously, advocated that the functions of government be placed in the hands of experts.

America’s Age of Imperialism. America’s Age of Imperialism was relatively short-lived, and somewhat anomalous in terms of overall US history. For a few brief years in the 1890s, the US aggressively pursued overseas colonies, holding on to those colonies even in the face of indigenous resistance and, unlike its handling of continental territories, offering the new colonies no pathway toward equal statehood and citizenship.

HIS 204 Week 2 Paper The Progressive Presidents

HIS 204Tutorials

The Progressive Presidents. The presidential election of 1912 was the most Progressive in US history; with the two frontrunners, Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, both espousing Progressive philosophies (and the most “conservative” candidate, William Howard Taft, being in many ways a Progressive himself). Although both Wilson and Roosevelt were Progressive, their attitudes toward Progressivism differed, at least in theory.

1. Question : Which African American scholar called for a “talented tenth” of all African Americans to attend a university, aspire to the highest professions, and abandon a conservative approach to race relations?

2. Question : In 1919 there was a devastating race riot in a major American city. Which city did this take place?

Normalcy and the New Deal. When the First World War ended, Americans welcomed what they hoped would be a “return to normalcy.” The decades that followed, however, are ones which would rarely be described as normal, in comparison to what came before or after.

The End of Isolation. In 1938, in Munich, the British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain made a deal with Adolph Hitler allowing Nazi Germany to annex Czechoslovakia’s Sudetenland. Hailed as a hero for his diplomacy at the time, Chamberlain is now widely reviled for his policy of “appeasement” to Nazi aggression. Yet one year later, Chamberlain would lead Britain into war against Germany in defense of Poland once it became clear that appeasement had failed.

A Single American Nation. When the First World War began, African-American leaders pressed the government to provide black men the right to go to combat to prove their devotion to their country. Hoping that their service would lay a stake on citizenship which the nation would have no choice but to honor, the “New Negro” of the 1920s adopted a more militant stance toward civil rights. The civil rights struggle envisioned at the time, however, made few concrete gains. Discrimination and disenfranchisement persisted.

Cold War. After the Second World War, the US embarked on what came to be known as the Cold War against the Soviet Union. Although the two sides never fought against each other directly, the Cold War nonetheless erupted into violence at times in places like Vietnam, Korea, and Afghanistan. As the US grew more activist and interventionist in its foreign policy, the domestic government also grew in power and in its role in the people’s lives.

1. Question : The “problem that had no name” centered upon:

2. Question : The Big Three decided on many important decisions at the Yalta Conference at the end of World War II. Which group was not one of them?

The Age of Reagan. Most of us have lived much of our lives in the “Age of Reagan,” a period which dates from 1980 and which may still be ongoing today. Historians increasingly agree that the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 represented a “revolution” in American society and, particularly, its politics.

The Lived Experience of Ordinary People. Especially since the 1960s, historians have sought to understand history not just as a series of major events presided over by generals and statesmen, but also as the lived experience of ordinary people. For this last discussion, begin by reflecting on your own past with an eye toward how American society has changed over the course of your life.

Focus of the Final Paper

Understanding history can be more difficult than many people imagine. Historians concern themselves not only with what happened but with why it happened. They analyze and assess a variety of sources, including primary sources (ones created during the time period the historian is examining) .
