Transitions from the 19th Century (1800s) to the 20th Century (1900s)

When America expanded west, they created urban cities and switched their lifestyle from agriculural to industrial. This increased the number of people who migrated from rural to urban areas. Because of this, there was a significant amount of physical growth in urban areas. More factories were built than farms and more jobs were created to support the growing population.








The superiority of men influenced women to fight for more rights and change how society saw them. This eventually led to women working outside their home.

The corruption from Tammany Hall led to direct elections and the women sufferage led to women gaining voting rights (19th amendment). After years of fighting for equality, women were finally guaranteed the right to vote on the same terms as men.

Before modernism was brought into society, fundamentalism was the only belief allowed to be taught. In 1925, a substitute high school teacher, John Scopes, was accused of violating Tennessee's Butler act, which made it unlawful to teach human evolution in school. This case, The Scopes Monkey trial, was the beginning of modernism being brought into society.

The complications with the telegraph and writing letters created the invention of the telephone. Also, the telegraph and trains led to the invention of the telephone and cars. This improved communication and transportation.

The capitalism and neglect of safety issues in companies led to the FDA and safety and government regulations. For example, the triangle shirtwaste factory fire led to safety regulations and the unsanitary conditions of meat packing industries led to the Meat Inspection act.
