In this book, we’re going to talk about United States history from 1877 to 1914. The first part of this time period was called “the Gilded Age” and the “Progressive Age” followed it. So, let’s get right to it!







WHY WAS THIS TIME PERIOD CALLED THE GILDED AGE?
“The Gilded Age” was the name of a novel written by Mark Twain and his friend and co-author Charles Dudley Warner. It became used as a defining phrase to label the change in American culture after the period of the War Between the States and the Reconstruction Era that followed it.

Wealthy industrialists were building huge mansions and had lavish lifestyles, but their wealth was often built on bribery, corruption, and business practices that weren’t ethical. This is why Twain and Warner described it as “gilded” or gold- plated instead of a truly “golden age.” In other words, the gold was only on the surface, and if you scratched it, you would see the ugliness underneath.







It was a metaphor for the greed and power of the industrial age. However, despite this greed, many positive developments occurred during this time in United States history. Throughout the Gilded Age, the economy of the United States grew at an incredibly rapid pace and by the end of the era the US was a world power.
