Summary
During the presidencies of Teddy Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and Woodrow Wilson, America was witness to so many political, corporate, and social reforms that the period came to be known as the Progressive Era. This program provides an excellent overview of the times, underscoring the importance of women's suffrage, the Square Deal, the temperance movement, and other signal initiatives. In addition, many of the era's movers and shakers are spotlighted, including Upton Sinclair, Eugene Debs, Jane Addams, Jacob Riis, Ida Tarbell, and "Battling Bob" LaFollette. Correlates to standards from the National Council for the Social Studies.
