Here is the question:
The period from the end of the American Civil War in 1865 to the turn of the 20th century
began with high hopes for the creation of a more free and equal nation.The defeat of the
rebellion and final destruction of slavery opened the door to this possibility.Looking at the
historical events of Reconstruction (1865-1877), the Gilded Age (1870-1890), and the Populist
Era (1890-1900), and citing specific examples from the in-class lectures, write a brief
(2 pages, typed, double-spaced, preferably 12-pt font, roughly 500 words)
essay explaining the extent to which the United States did, or did not live up to the ideal of creating a more free and equal society between 1865 and 1900.
I just want you to paraphrase the essay that I uploaded and don’t miss any information.
