Industrialization, Urbanization, and Progressivism Study Guide
Overview: While the Industrial Revolution came to the United States in the early 1800s, it was not until after the Civil War that rapid industrialization occurred. With the advent of industry, many Americans began moving to the cities in search of wealth and prosperity. Often, they found neither, as industrialization and urbanization lead to many social problems. Towards the end of this unit, we will begin to explore some of the “progressive” efforts at fixing the problems brought about by the growth of American cities.
