Summary
In 1900, America was a nation on the move. Its population had doubled over the past 100 years, its people were becoming the most prosperous on Earth. President McKinley had led the nation out of its worst depression. People could travel with ease across the nation in six days. Half of the nation's original timber had been cut down and people were talking about conservation. Women were striking out on their own and the Women's movement was growing. America goes to war with the Filipinos to keep the Philippines under American control. Anti-war sentiments grow. Most of America remained rural, but people were traveling more and began to move to the cities. In New York City, one third of the population were foreign immigrants who lived in poverty. Many began moving to other cities further west.
