Virtual Museum of American History—Defining the Contours of Freedom at the Turn of the Century
How did the United States change from 1877-1924? Answering this broad question about turn-of-the-century America was the guiding task for juniors in their U.S. and The World history class. Students explored the themes of immigration, labor & capital, social reform, women's suffrage, African-American Civil Rights, and the city in American life. In doing so, this virtual museum makes the argument that the events of the turn-of-the-century transformed the United States into a modern nation and redefined what it meant to be an American.
