Summary:
In this gripping program, see how industrialization transformed America -- creating a class of the wealthy business elite, a thriving middle class and an expanding class of immigrant factory workers. The U.S. economy was in trouble in the late 19th century, a crisis that fueled worker outrage over issues such as low wages, child labor and dangerous working conditions. Tensions escalated between workers and business owners, and farmers suffered economically. Out of their discontent emerged the Populist Party. The Populists ran vigorous campaigns, but never assumed the Oval Office. As economic prosperity returned after the 1896 election, strikes and labor violence diminished, thereby reducing the turmoil that had pervaded the nation. Part of the multivolume United States History Origins to 2000 DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
