  • Why was there a dramatic increase in sharecropping and tenancy in the late nineteenth century? Why did the South have more sharecroppers than other parts of the country? Why, in your opinion, was the rate of sharecropping low in the western territories of New Mexico and Arizona?
  • As the line of the “frontier” moved farther west, Native Americans who had been forced west by treaties and congressional decrees once again found Anglo settlers encroaching on land that bad been promised to them. Unwilling to move again, they attacked the immigrants as they passed through or attempted to settle their land. Perhaps the best known of the Indian Wars involved Lieutenant Colonel George Custer. Miners had been encroaching on the Black Hills of the Dakota territory in search of gold, violating the Black Hills Reservation of the Sioux. Custer and his detachment of 210 soldiers moved against a Sioux encampment only to find themselves surrounded by more than 2,500 warriors.
  • What was the Great Sioux War? What happened at Little Bighorn, and what were the consequences? Why were hundreds of Indians killed at Wounded Knee?
  • With the near-extinction of the buffalo came the rise of the cattle drive. The terminus for a cattle drive was whichever rail line was closest. As railways continued to extend west, the destinations of the cattle drives changed. As farmers continued to settle the plains, they began to mark their land with a new invention, barbed wire. Several hard winters and a period of drought led to the end of cattle drives, and the open range gave way to the closed.
  • The construction of Hoover Dam When completed in 1936, Hoover Dam was the world’s largest concrete structure.
  • The flow of population during this period switched from extending the frontier, as at the turn of the century, to retreating to the safety and security of cities. Technologies such as elevators, steam radiators, and less expensive steel allowed urban dwellers to live more compactly than ever before.

  • Tandem tricycle In spite of the danger and discomfort of early bicycles, “wheeling” became a popular form of recreation and mode of transportation.
  • William James proposed the concept of pragmatism, that ideas gain their validity not from their inherent truth but instead from their social consequences and practical applications.
