HIS 105: Assignment 1.2: Industrialization After the Civil War Final Paper Professor Alan Rogers Strayer University 9 November 2014 ===== Submitted Paper: Following the end of the Civil War, the agrarian portion of the United States became an industrial giant with metropolitan cities. This time of life in America was often referred to as “Gilded Age”, due to the absence of employment improvement and political exploitation, and the gluttonous industrial tycoons. This section will discuss three major aspects that affected society, the economy, and politics: The working conditions of the factories during the Industrialization were terrible. The employers had the workers work ten to twelve hours a day with no breaks. The workers
Also the iron and textile industries benefited greatly with the revolution. Before the revolution, I had mentioned that manufacturing was done in private homes, the revolution expanded factories and then instead of making products at home which took several months, factories could produce a mass production. The Revolution also boosted the transportation, communication and banking systems. How did the Industrial revolution transform families? The industrial revolution improved the standard of living for some people; however it also made employment and living conditions for the poor and working classes very tough.
He closed many of Capone’s breweries and speakeasies, and slowly brought his empire down. Convicted of Income Tax Evasion The federal government finally managed to arrest him by prosecuting him for income tax evasion in 1931. He was tried, found guilty, and sentenced the next year to 11 years in the federal penitentiary in Atlanta, Georgia. But he was still able to oversee his criminal empire from his cell. In 1934, he was transferred to the new federal prison at Alcatraz Island, built to hold the country's worst criminals, in San Francisco Bay.
The Jungle Kendall Paris July 13, 2012 Life in industrial America, particularly for immigrants and working class people was a big struggle. There were so many hardships that they had to go through such as: working conditions, unjust businessmen/wages, and poverty/starvation. “So America was a place of which lovers and young people dreamed. If one could only manage to get the price of passage, he could count his troubles at an end.” (Pg. 27) Most of the immigrants are tricked into the beliefs that they can find steady work, high wages, and a comfortable life in America.

Apart from the colonist being harassed with taxes, their trade with all parts of the world except Britain was another reason why the colonists wrote the Declaration of Independence. The illegal imposition of rules over their trade and production, commonly known as the Navigation Acts, which have been pressed on them for over a century and made worse by the Sugar Act and Townshend Acts was controlled once the Declaration of Independence was written and signed. Furthermore, the colonists were being deprived in many cases. The Boston Massacre was when a mob of 50 colonists gathered to protest against the officials. As fists and clubs began flying a soldier dropped dead, this forced the soldiers to fire, killing five civilians and wounding six.
The character Mr Robert Ewell is supposed to represent racism and we can see this by his action for example ‘Mr Bob Ewell stopped Atticus on the post office corner, spat in his face and told him he’d get him if it took the rest of his life.’ White people wanted to make sure that they were on the upper hand than black people. In the Deep South around 3700 people were lynched and we can see this in To Kill a Mockingbird when a mob came to take Tom Robinson to have him lynched. Though Scout came to the rescue by making the people go back to their homes, murder did happen numerous times in America in the 1930s. A real life example is Emmet Till, who was murdered in Mississippi at the age of 14 after reportedly flirting with a white woman. He was from Chicago, visiting his relatives in the Mississippi where he spoke to 21-year-old Carolyn Bryant, a married woman.
Slave raids and even wars increased. A young man named Equiano was one of these very slaves. He thought “that he had got into a world of bad spirits, and that the whites were going to kill him.”(Equiano, 10) After the potential slaves were kidnapped, merchants forced them to walk in slave caravans to the European coastal forts. Which was sometimes as far as 1,000 miles. Locked up and poorly fed, only half the Africans survived these death marches.
